The mother of my children is sufferring from depression, but will not get help, !
Question: She just moved back in with her mother, who threw out prescriptions when my wife was a teenager, and who broke down when my wife asked to see a counselor, saying it's all her fault, and didn't stop crying until my wife said nevermind... She just keeps hurting me, but I know it's her mental condition, and not her fault. I am at a complete loss.

first i don't know what state or even country you are in . but if your are totally serious you need support groups. you need to treat this situation just like you would as if your children's mother had a drinking problem and her mother was her codependent.How do i know i too:am bipolar and Living now in full recovery with very few relapses.if you had family support group they can lead you to the recourse in your state to help you with the appropriate steps to help you and you family...
If your are here in the state's start here..

Try and persuade your wife to go to the doctor, it does appear that your mother-in-law has a strong hold on your wife
I suggest counseling.
do your best to compfort her and reassure her that you are there if she needs anything ,, and try to understand her needs ,, truely your needs are not going to be the same as hers so keep that in mind , she will probably be acting unreasonable to you , but at this difficult time , give her all the reasurance you can , and unreasonable , is expectable for the timebeing , later if you need to assert your rights ,,fine but for now pretend you have none , and she will recover , she needs you right now more then she knows .... but keep your distance ,, time .. ticks one talk at a time or should that be tock ...
