Now What? I talked to my husband about seeking help for his depressed mood, now he's upset and is barely speaking to me.
Last night after the kids were in bed, I took the opportunity to my husband and ask him what he has been doing so far about seeking help for his depressed mood. He told me that he does not have the time, no one can help him with the stress at work (it will still be there if he talks to someone or takes meds), no one can help him with paying the bills, etc. He says he is just going to deal with it on his own like he has been.
Meanwhile, I think it could already be hurting our marriage. So, I told him my fears. He took it as a threat if he did not seek help. I was just trying to make him see how this depression has changed things. I feel like I can't talk to him because he gets upset that I "bring things up", but then he tells me that I know when he's feeling beat down and I don't go to him. Its hard for me to do when I ask him what is wrong, hug him, kiss him, and he shuts me out, says its nothing, practically pushes me away. What doest he want? I don't know what to do.
