I am Kitt. My husband has been living with my depression for 25 years and for the last 14 months I have struggled, had to quit work and I know he is under stress do to my illness. He tries very hard but there are times when he goes up north to the cabin to just get away from it all.
He will say he will call and then he forgets. I gave up expecting him to really call.
Most of the time he is supportive but he does get angry sometimes and say I am not trying hard enough to get better.
Will your husband sit down and talk this through with you? Tell him how it makes you feel when you are alone and counting on his phone call.
Take care of you.
Hi zomese ,
I think one possibility would be for you and your hubby to go to an appointment together , so that your doc can answer the questions he has , and explain your condition and how it makes you feel. He can't not take the doc seriously.
If you don't mind me asking - how long have you suffered with BP , and , how long have you known your husband?
Don't take the blame , you're not at fault - but do give your hubby time to work out the reality of BP , as I said , a joint app. if he is willing , and maybe the odd leaflet just lying around might help.
Keep the faith hun ,
i am going to say something that most of you won't like. it is the credo that has sustained my wife and my relationship for over 30 yrs.
I am not in this world to tend to you
And you are not in this world to tend to me
If, however, somehow, we meet on the same path going in the same direction,
YOU are responsible for YOU. HE is responsible for HIM. if you look to others to fill the gaps in your own life and personality, you will end up disappointed and find your life wasted.
search for the beauty inlife and always move towards the light. there are a lot worse things in this life than being alone. i've lived through some of them.
