I need help helping my wife

My wife is depressed and around this time of year it gets really bad. She was sexually abused by her brother about 16 years ago. Her parents are since divorced and dont know. I am the only one that knows this in our family. I think this is the main reason she is deppressed. Would telling her mom and dad make thinks worse? I feel I am running out of options. Help

WELCOME


This must be very difficult for you seeing the one you love in so much pain.


No IMHO telling her parents is not a good idea.
