Hi. I am new to Daily Strength and am looking to connect with others who are dealing with depression of a loved one. My husband is struggling with the disease and I don't know how to help him. He has tried different medications and is now on a new one. He is battling suicidal thoughts and can't get into a psychiatrist for another month, even though he has requested immediate help. It took some convincing on my part to get him to seek help and now that he's asked he feels largely neglected. We have considered the option of emergency room treatment, but he's not quite ready to take that step. He is afraid to be alone and is unwilling to let friends and family know how he is feeling. He's been on Wellbutrin for 10 days and yesterday he said he felt nothing as opposed to feeling like hurting himself. Does this mean that maybe it is beginning to work? Is this typical? Any advice would be welcome.
