My daughter has always been sick

She will be 45 this year. She has been married, raised 2 kids, then went to college to earn her degree (after her father died). She has endured so much and now is depressed. How can I help her? She recently quit an overwhelmingly stressful job and is now working per diem at a place she loves but for some reason, they won’t hire her full time. As a mom, I don’t know what to say or do. She is wonderfully caring and this job would complete her. Anyway, it’s a rough time right now. Asthma is currently under control but the depression is not. And now she has no medical insurance! But may turn to Medicaid. Anyway, I wonder if this is normal for others to get depressed over this illness.
