    Could you speak to a different doctor? Could you ring for an appointment and explain you need to see someone who specialises in mental health? It’s never right for your concerns to be brushed under the carpet like that
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    Sounds like you've been through an awful lot.
    Your sons wont understand as they've never been through it...But try talking to them lovely.
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    Hi, I have just joined this website today. Feeling very low and awaiting therapy. Your husband sounds much like mine, no understanding or empathy. I have tried to get him to watch some You Tube videos, but so far he hasn't. I too have been on antidepressants for many many years, worked through it, but gave up two years ago due to the stress. Enjoyed being at home and looking after grandchildren at first, but just before Christmas, this depression came on again despite the meds. Husband says I need a new job, he still works, but I can't contemplate the thought of going through interviews. Saw GP again last week and he has referred me to see a therapist, but the wait is probably about two months. So hard, isn't it. I don't really leave the house now and don't see anyone all day long. Sending big hugs.

    I am in the situation that your husbands are in and it's really hard to know what to say or what not to say on each day to make things better/worse... The only thing that helped me was to talk to people with depression and to bounce ideas and upsets I was experiencing on them - which in turn meant that I could get my husband to open up and talk to me a bit more which is the only thing which has saved our relationship....
    We do have separate male/female sections if you wanted to ask them to join here to talk - but needed your own space too....

    Thank you, Suzi. I really do appreciate it is difficult for husbands/wives to see their loved ones in this state. My husband still works, so is out most of the time. On weekends, he gets on with what he wants to do and I don't blame him at all. It is a distraction for him and he needs it. I will tell him about the other sections on the site.
