Living Depressed
bbeltran posted:
After reading some of the other comments from depressed people and their spouses i just had to write my own.
I have been Married for 12 years now and been suffering with depression for about 20yrs. It has gotten worst since I was laid off at work after 11years there. I just feel like nothing I do is right and my self esteem is in the toilet. I am the caregiver for our 15month old daughter and my wife a RN works during the day. I'm going to therapy because I do not want to take medication but it does not seem to be helping me. I feel very depressed and want to feel better but can't. I want to do things in the house and help my wife more but it just drags me down.

My wife gets very irritated and mad at me when i do things wrong and that makes me feel even worst and i guess I internalize these feelings and feel bad about myself.

I get mad at my wife for not understanding me. But I also feel bad for her since the financial burden is on her now.
