I'm so sorry to hear that depression has touched your life. Unfortunately, this is a very common topic here. We have a discussion "living with a depressed husband " that was started 4 years ago and continues to get comments from those looking for support. You might want to look through that so that you know you are NOT alone!

A few questions - is your spouse currently seeking therapy or taking any medication to manage depression? Has he/she been diagnosed by a medical professional? Have you spoken to a therapist or counselor for support? Are you able to talk to your spouse about their depression?

Sorry to ask so many questions but I'm trying to find out what your situation is so I can point you to some resources! The article below might have some information you can find useful:
Helping Friends and Loved Ones with Depression

Please let us know a few more details and (((hugs))) to you during this difficult time!
