    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
