months of what we thought was depression and taking anti- depressants. didnt help,actually was worse.
7 weeks ago a big blowout and he leaves, keeping his responsibilities up for both me and the children. he need a break, he needs space...
this week he is feeling worse than ever and finally goes back to the doctor, after the blood tests come back we find his testosterone level is VERY low. doc explains male menopause medically termed andropause...also know as a midlife crisis, and prescribes androgel.
no what? my husband isnt taking all the doc talked about to heart, meaning he isnt accepting what we thought were some of the things wrong with our lives in general, are some of the very syptoms doc talked about...tired, aggrivated, sleep problems, aches,mood swings and generally being unhappy with everything...job, marriage,children,goals... and not knowing why.
I want my husband to be accepting of this( i know it might take a bit ) and come home. I can not fix anything with him,
however those things that had seemed to bother him about me have been taken care of while he has been gone. I did NOTHING but focus on myself and our children. I want to be there and show him my support to get through this...
has anyone heard of or had any experience with this drug? i am hoping it helps him to see what he needs to do to help and care for himself, and yes, i am also hoping he will eventually see how it has affected the rest of his family and come home!
