That acceptance, coupled with her encouragement, gave me the courage I needed to see a counselor for the first time. I am trying to be strong and keep my family together. Depot medication is an order that he must take medication by order of the Law. Or is there a chance that he will come around once he works through some of this stuff? And of course you need to be honest in your appraisal of whether or not your mate is having problems with you and your relationship. I have today contacted a financial helpline to see if I can get help with our dire situation so as to relieve some of that terrible burdon my husband feels every single day that he has failed his family by not being able to support us. Then since early summer he has been in a downward spiral, pushing me away, saying our marriage has always been bad, lying, hiding and deleting texts.
I totally agree with you. I do think his problem was exacerbated by the diagnosis of 'Reactive Depression' because this somehow reinforced his belief that I abused him. Do I want my kids to marry someone like my spouse? For more than 40 years I have been helping men and the women who love them. At the time, he would tell me that he was working. The more you understand about why men are the way they are, the more you can help.
In a sensitive and honest way, talk about the illness with kids so they don't feel afraid or worried. Can both of these make a husband just turn the emotional switch off towards his wife? In other words, you can change your husband. Maybe one day I will. In addition he may also have a Thyroid problem which makes people very tired and irritable, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

I talked to him about it and went to my parents house for weekend to cool off turns out he packed up his stuff ,our suff things we bought together and left the rest of our child and my stuff and left our flat that was in my name.
He destroyed any good feeling with his obstinate idea he had to be allowed his rights under a contract. If I dont forgive him fast enough and act like everything is fine, round 2 begins. I have so much anger towards the father of my daughter even though he does everything he can to help. Your partner tells you what to do. But more importantly, I think the thing we as their partners probably both have to do is trust them and let go.
He thinks I'm sleeping with people at work, and if I mention a work colleague he fixates on them. I have tried to just ignore him when he says horrible things to me and I carry on with a smile on my face like someone demented. Any sort of physical or psychological abuse is a warning that this person is out of control. I met a man a year ago. When he's calm, address his irrational behavior. He was a lousy father never around.
Actually, your former wife sounds a lot like my first wife. However he is completely against getting any help. But I've made a life for myself with good friends which works for us both. As my partner says to me, 'Why should I put up with it? I am happy to see you write an article from the perspective of an unaffected spouse. You may suspect that your spouse is depressed by the way he or she is acting. They think he is the best thing that ever happened to me. Since depression clouds judgement, your advice and help may not be accepted.
We broke up and I was left very confused as I didn't really have an explanation. He is so unhappy with work and it is a high stress job. Im tired of waking up happy and thinking its a beauitful day and thinking it will be a good day or that anything good will happen. Ask questions, read books and visit reliable websites about the diagnosis and treatment of depression. Our teenage children don't know what has got into him, and also disagree with all that he is accusing me of - and they are angry with him as a result. We see this with husbands who are becoming increasingly angry and increasingly withdrawn.
That if he did not want me around at the moment, that it probably meant he would not come back into my life. This anger didn't start until we moved away from my family 2 months ago, and it has progressively gotten worse. Try to remember that the relationship you used to know may not return. Whether he scrambles eggs for the two of you in the morning or scurries around with a quick clean-up before visitors arrive, helping is loving. The specific effects of depression will differ in every relationship, but this is the problem I hear about most often and the one I lived with. And he's never sorry about hurting my feelings.
