Spouses that are always suffering and do nothing day after day

My husband hurt his back, yet again for the 1304968th time. It is starting to get old. Every time he hurts his back he doesn't work, doesn't do anything, not even the doctor. He will sleep all day, then watch tv all night. Literally will do nothing. I get his back hurts, but come on. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Wear a brace, see the doctor, do something! Get sick of seeing him sleeping all the time, watching tv.

Sounds like he might be depressed.

Why will he not see a doctor?

So are you saying that a hurt back is depression?

He insists they will not do anything

Maybe he has a reason...?

A person who does nothing to help themselves is destined to deteriorate.

Sometimes depression can manifest as physical pain, very real. The way he responds to it makes me think depression. Especially not seeking help.

I don't think he cares. I think he likes having a broken back so he doesn't have to do anything but sleep, eat, get high, and watch tv.
