My husband is in the USN and he is stationed in Japan. We chose to do an un-accompanied tour because our son is a junior in high school. Anyway, all seemed to be going well until out of the blue I get an email that says that he is unhappy. And since that day has been cold, distant and has withdrawn from everyone and everything. He has not contacted any friends or family. This was in June, he just came home for a 10 dy visit and when he got here I immediatley knew there was something wrong with him. He looked hollow and was just angry. He said that all of this is because of me. I have been doing research on depression and Im convinced that he fits but my question is 1)I think I have him somewhat tossing the idea but he is concerned about taking medication because it could ruin his career. Any suggestions on how to get through it without medication? And 2) How do I cope with it so I can help him? He left to return to Japan today. Please help!
