I have a unique situation - I'm American and my husband is Italian. I've always known he had a problem with depression - but just like all of us who are not familiar with the disease, I thought that once we got to the US he would be happy and "cured". Well, surprise, surprise, he is not "cured" and in fact, is more depressed than ever. We are newlyweds and instead of enjoying our new lives together, I'm constantly trying to do and say things to "make him better". I know this is ineffective, but what do I do? I've tried everything, he refuses to see a doctor and I find myself constantly trying to "cheer up" a person that can clearly not be "cheered up". What advise does someone out there have for a person in my position? There is obviously so much more, but I'm really at my wits end....
