My husband's depression and ptsd has led to a slew of problems in our marriage. Although we're both dealing with depression (I deal with mild depression and anxiety that's much less severe than his)and unhappy in our relationship, we have different ideas about the future. I don't think our relationship can be repaired, but he wants to and is willing to try. I think that by sticking around I may be hurting his chances at happiness... I'm an enabler and basically make it easy for him to make excuses rather than deal with his problems. But I'm afraid if I leave that it may ruin his trust and possibly lead to him hurting himself. If your spouse felt like this, what would you want them to do? Should I stick around and try to help him heal even though staying in the relationship would make me unhappy? What can I do to help him and also help myself?
