Thanks to everyone


#1

I just wanted to say a big thank you to those of you who offered your prayers and advice a few weeks ago regarding my desire to leave my husband. We’ve had a few more blow ups, and from talking through them my husband has admitted to being depressed, and is starting counseling this afternoon. Hopefully we’ll see some changes from here!!

Now I just need to try my best to love him and support him as he tries to work through things.

This is good to hear, MC! I will keep you and your dh in my prayers that he will be able to get what he needs to be a happy, well-adjusted person so you both can live in peace and love. God bless!

Praise God! I can tell you that my DH exhibited very similar behaviors (the irritation with the slightest upset from the kids; the need for what seemed like excessive alone time and “relaxing”; the feeling of never being able to make him happy no matter how hard I tried; and above all, the walking on eggshells) before he was diagnosed with a major depressive episode. I felt foolish for not having realized sooner what he was going through, but after receiving therapy and medication, he was like a different man-- or, rather, like the man I always knew was back there.

I wish you the best. This can be really, really hard, a rollercoaster of a ride. Your perseverence and commitment will likely mean the world to him, even if he is not able to express this to you. You will be in my prayers.

I know… me too…

We had a big talk on the weekend when I suddenly realized he’s depressed! He went to the doctor yesterday, and she diagnosed him with genetic clinical depression. I think knowing there is a cause for the way is feeling has really helped him out.
