Welcome Gkab. Sounds like you're in quite a state. I've been there but not to your extent except a couple times. It's horrible, I'm so sorry for you. It's probably not going to let up until you come to terms with the ex and son. I certainly can relate to thinking I'm going crazy. You're on enough medication where it should help more than it seems to be. Hang in there. There's a very supportive group on this forum. Again, welcome.

It's not only that but my ex was my soul I relied on her for so much.my son was on his own at 35 living near by.But last year he was attacked by the same anxiety monster that attacked my mother brother and uncle.And wound up In a mental health care inpatient program after couciling that thought it best to quit his high pressure job and move far away from his father so may first they both did.Like blaming me instead of genetics.His uncle my brother at 69 took his life 2 years ago after a lifelong battle with this mental illness.functuoning caring person then wham it was over.ill stop.
