wife has Lupus, depressed

My wife has been terribly ill the past 10 months and has been diagnosed with Lupus. She just isn't getting better. No medication is working and in fact all of them are making her more sick but she just can't get off them. She has lost her job because she is pretty much in bed all day. It has caused us to go bankrupt and we will also eventually lose our house. But the worst is not having my best friend and knowing things will never be the same. We have three little girls that I pretty much have to do everything for now plus take care of her and work a full time job and pick up hours at another. I was handling all this best I could but have occasional bouts of depression. I tried Celexa once but it made me so nauseated and tired that I gave it up after a week. We went to Mayo over xmas and I was hopeful they could help. The new drug she is on is making her even more sick than before. I think I've lost all hope. I'm at work now and I want to cry. I don't think I can keep going on like this.... the only thing that keep me going are those three little girls ....
