I remember the pit I was in emotionally when I decided to end my life. I would sit with my finger on the call button of my cell phone with my friend's number dialed and be completely unable to push it. Thankfully, the day I had decided to end it, I got in an arguement with my husband. And I blurted out why I wanted him to leave the house. He stopped, looked at me, and said, "Now we get you help." And we did. You have a workaholic husband. Me, too. Tell him. He loves you more than work. He just doesn't know how to help you. But I bet he will put work aside to take you to a counselor. You see, depression is a disease of lies. Your mind tells you that you aren't worth it. You have no friends or anyone who cares. But those are the lies. A good counselor will help you learn how to call out those lies and stop them. And, if you don't have one, get a small dog. It will force you to take it for walks. And you need the exercise for your mental health. My little papillon/pekinese mix my husband gave me 6 months after my diagnosis is the best counselor ever. He makes me get out of bed on the bad days. And he has brought my husband and I closer. He's great therapy.
