    My Husband is depressed
    An_249803 posted:
    Dear All,
    My husband is very much depressed. His medicine Risperidone is also not helping us a lot.
    Everyday he just sleeps and don`t feel like doing anything else.
    I push him too much to go out and have fun but he is not at all co-operating. I have a baby who is 15 months now and with her its difficult to manage things for my hubby.
    What should I do ?? Feeling so helpless and how to get back my hubby`s normal life back ??? He is on short term leave and he is afraid that he will work again or not. I am a homemaker and such things are very challenging once he is not willing to do the job.
    Please help and guide me
