I am married to my best friend, who has always been the happy life lover--until 6 months ago when he suddenly spiraled into a MAJOR depression. The change in him is a complete 100% difference from the man I knew. We have gone from a complete connection to a complete disconnection. He feels absolutley nothing about anything, except intense sadness and fear that it will never change back. His eyes are truly empty--towards me, his family, his friends. I am struggling to handle this loss of \"him\", to help or realize I can\'t, to try and not take it personally and let it ruin the marriage I know we have, to not drown in the darkness of all of this. I thought I understood depression, but I now know I only knew the tip of the iceberg. Please help me, so I can be strong and help him.
