I have a mental problem, my wife left me and took my only son. And now not showing any interest and I am missing my son. I feel like nothing is left and no reason to live. I am getting ideas of suicide so this pain can finish and I can no longer be feeling this.

I don't want to talk with anyone... a negativity is coming from the mind, like nothing left to live for. I just want to lie in bed the whole day and cry. I have headache, head spinning, and weakness. I don’t want to eat or say anything.

At age 85 my wife suddenly started having hallucinations and blaming me of depriving her of money she dropped on the bedroom floor. Since then I took her to a neurologist who prescribed several blood tests and a cerebral echography. The diagnosis was multiple mini strokes in the cortex. She has been under medication to control loss of memory and loss of weight. There is no improvement after 8 months of treatment.
