DH and depression

Anonymous

My DH depression is very severe right now. I know it is a chemical inbalance and he definitely cannot just snap out of it. I am trying to stay positive and keep the household running smoothly on top of working full time and some side jobs to keep our finances afloat. He works but I actually asked him to decrease his hours because it is so severe. He agrees he needs to and he is a super hard worker. So that is hard for.him too. He is very dear to me and love him so much. He receives help through Dr and counseling.

But I am feeling at a lost to help him and sometimes I think I get frustrated then I feel guilt. It is hard on everyone in the household.

Just simply supporting him helps more than you know. When you're that deep, having someone that has your back is so important. He has to work his way to the other side though.

My daughter has been dealing with depression as well. It is extremely draining to be around if I'm being honest.

I'm sorry op. Maybe try seeing your own therapist?

Both Dh and myself suffer from depression and mood disorder, it’s hard. I also have bouts of psychosis and that’s hard on him. I’m trying to support him through his issues while fighting my own.

If he is a hard worker like you say, encourage him to work or do something else he enjoys. This should HELP him too. Some men get more depressed the LESS they work.
