It could be depression, or it could just be stress and anxiety getting the best of you. ANYTHING can become addictive, but the pill I'm taking (like many others that a doctor could prescribe you) are not habit forming. You can get the generic brand of what I take at Wal-Mart for $4 a month without insurance.
I understand how your husband feels, but this is your life and you're unhappy. You're frustrated, sad, angry, etc. If there is a way to make yourself feel better to get you through the day without breaking down, then why not try it? It's worth a try...if it doesn't work you haven't lost anything. There are some things you just can't help...no amount of convincing yourself to stop acting that way will change it (if there's really something wrong). I tried convincing myself I was fine and needed NO help for 5 years...
