I am trying to stay hopeful but it is really hard. I am starting to get quite angry and worried that I am going to lose it. We went to a psychopharmacologist who wants to prescribe more medicine. I have had it with all the medicine. I feel like there needs to be a willingness to change.View Thread
I, too, am glad to have found this site. My husband has been suffering with a deep depression for about 18 months now, though he has been taking medication since I have known him ( about 12 years) and the symptoms were under control. Something triggered his depression and he has been working with a psychiatrist that has switched his medication several times. Nothing seems to work. I have two small kids, 10 and 8, and I am terrified of being with him ten years from now and being in the same state, after reading these posts. My parents keep suggesting that this is no life and I should think about making a decision. He is a sweet man, but I know my feelings have changed. I use all my energy to run my business and keep the kids enjoying life and thinking positive. But, days go by where my husband just wants to lay in bed. We actually work together and I worry that I enable him to stay home and not work since he can just complain about not feeling well and not come to work. I can't take it anymore, really. I am afraid of leaving him in this state, but I am also afraid of staying. Not sure what to do:(View Thread
