I know my husband deals with a great deal of depression and anxiety...but he also has dissociative tendencies. He gets paranoid easy and blanks out most the day. He is going to therapy and taking an anti depressant, but I don't think he's being upfront with his therapist (he's a psych grad and knows how to work the system) he rarely talks to me anymore and the worst part about everything is the way he deals with our son. He is totally oblivious to him, doesn't talk to him, aggravates him, and won't take my advice on how to deal with him better (he's 2). The last year we were separated for a long time, I took him back though. I was happier without him in the house, but I can't help having guilt feelings on the fact that he is sick and maybe I should be taking care of him. I'm only 28 and I feel like I could be living a much better life. But I also feel that is selfish. My hurt and anger towards him has gotten almost out of control. I feel like he tricked me into marrying him that he hid his illness and it didn't come out until he already had a kid. How do I get him to be a better dad? Is it ok for me to leave?

One of those platitudes you often hear in response to 'how are you doing?' is "I'm on this side of the grave, so it's all good...". Me, tired of that reply will start asking: "How do you know for sure it's not better on the other side (of this bull-shit)...?"
"Any day above ground is a good day.." (they say); has anyone ever asked someone below ground...?
