Re: Husband has depression....when is enough enough??
But if your spouse refused to treat their cancer effectively, do your vows mean you have to sit there and watch them die?
I haven't had depression, and while I suspect my wife suffered from it to a small degree, I don't have much experience with it in my life. But my understanding is that in most cases, there are treatment options. But the person suffering from it has to put in the effort to make things better. It's hard to tell from the OP if he's done that seriously.
I guess that's another question... If your spouse is suffering from alcoholism, drug addictions, bi-polar disorders... I sure couldn't tell someone that they should feel bad about finally saying they couldn't take any more. At some point, you have to take care of yourself, as you'll become useless at taking care of them as you get burned out and worn down.
To the OP... Are there any support groups you could try? Individual counseling to help you deal with what you're going through? Do you have a good support network?
