This is my 1st post...I have been struggling with severe depression for 6 years now. It has been horrible on my family. My husband bought 4 boos about spousal depression 4+ years ago (on his own) and I thought that was a really good sign. But...he won't read them I have tried everything from asking nicely to yelling and screaming and telling him how hurtul it is to know he bought the books, but doesn't read them. I can't make him read them and I don't want them in my house any longer. I don't know how to let it go???? My marriage is suffering and I am still depressed. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hey pattlyn, have you or are you currently in therapy? It has helped me to talk with a professional, I am not 'cured' nor do I expect to be, but it does help.
