Eish. So husband is sulky and immature, and not prepared to act like a father / step-father, and adolescent is being adolescent ? 4-year-old busy being 4. Family counselling might indeed be helpful, though it could only be so if they all agreed to take part sincerely and give it a chance to work. They might see iot as an aceptable way to solve the problems they may think they have with you, but that's fine i it gets them working together with a suitable counsellor.
If they will NOT at this stage take part, at least see a personal counsellor to help you cope better with all this, and with your diabetes.
I cannot keep track of the rules of different medical Aids or the whereabouts of diferent counsellors, but FAMSA is a national group which can help you find a suitable individual / family counsellor within reach, and may know about what would be covered by medical aid. Their number should be in your phone book.
