[TRIGGER] Hi i am new to this so bear with me. I am finding it really hard at the moment to keep positive about my spouses depression. He is back on medication for his anxiety and that is good that he is open to help but i am struggling this time with the destructive behaviours he exhibits when depression has its grip on him. It is mainly his drinking every night this week. I watched him drink a bottle of wine today then get up for some beer and i thought and said to him why do this? He knows he is'nt supposed to drink as its the first thing our doctor asks him when he attends his surgery and yet he does it in binges when he is struggling. I can't deal with his snideness and irritablility this time and am wondering why. I am usually able for the relapses into depression so why not this time. He feels he has no problem with a few beers every night this week and i am the only one with a problem. He has been physically abusive once before over my wanting him to stop drinking though this was years ago and we dealt with that. I am so alone in my home tonight and don't want to be in the same room as him. What do i do to keep myself going this time?
