Me and my husband have been seperated since October. He started drinking about two years ago and slowly declined into depression. It got so bad that he started to completely withdraw from me which led to our seperation. It is very hard to see the person you love change completely, not want anything from you and feel so helpless about it. Thank goodness he started to go to counseling, but I think he really needs to stop drinking and get on an antidepressant, which hopefully he says he is going to do. I think the hardest part about having a loved one with depression and addiction is that they really need to help themselves and you feel so helpless. I have been so patient waiting for him to get better, but he is actually getting worse. I don't know how long to wait for him either. Is there anyone else who has a husband that has also withdrawn due to depression that could chat?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
