My husband has been suffering from depression for years. I finally got him to seek help. I went with him to the clinic and he was seen and made another appointment for the following week. I see this as a good thing. However I still don't understand his depression. At times he doesn't talk to any of us ( we have two kids ). He's alway feeling sorry for himself and he rarely eats. He has a hard time going to work and once there he'll find any excuse to leave early. He has moments when all is good and we as a family do things together and times that he just can't bring himself to face the world. He worries over so much that he can't even enjoy going out to dinner. He's too concerned about how the kids will act. He's constantly voiceing his concern about all the little things but still won't do anything about it. He gets upset that the dog ran out of meds but won't make an appointment to get the dog more meds because the process of picking up the phone and calling the vet stresses him out. He gets upset about the lawn needing to be mowed, literally upset but won't mow it. I tend to do everything around the house as much as I can and rarely take a break for myself just to ensure nothing will upset him and shut him off. I don't know what to do and I'm hoping that he'll actually go to his next appointment. I had to drag him to the first one. I just need to stay sane myself, for the kids and for him. I love him I just don't know how much more I can handle this.
