I am depressed, confused and anxious.  Dh and I have been fighting all day and I honestly don't know why.  I am so confused right now.  I actually tried to break my wrist by repeatedly banging it against the door frame.  It isn't broken just badly bruised and sprained.  I talked to my tdoc and she thinks I should be hospitalized for a day or two.  I will call my pdoc when she is in her office tonight.  I really don't know what to do.  I am just really confused.  I don't know what has caused the problems with dh and I or how to fix them.  he isn't even talking to me right now.  I feel so stupid and worthless.  Like I am not a good wife or mother.  when I told dh that I think I broke my wrist by falling on it, he didn't even care.  he didn't even want to take me to the doctor so I drove myself.  I am really lost right now.

Sounds like you're bottoming out a bit, alright. Maybe a couple of days in the hospital would do you good.

With your husband, when did this all start? What was the first thing that set off fighting? Was it a couple of days ago? Something been bugging you since yesterday? Has he been irritable?

But you have to hear this, because it's true: You ARE a good wife and mother, you're just having a hard time right now. EVERYONE has hard times.

Let hubby cool off and call your doc tonight. Keep us up to date and let us know how you're doing.

My bipolar disease got much worse when my marriage fell apart. When you are suffering depression it is very important to be in a supportive environment. But when we get consumed with our illness, our loved ones sometimes are not the best source of support.
A short stay in the hospital is a very good idea. You are not alone in this.

Yes, I agree with newsgal and serafena.  A hospital stay will give you a safe refuge and the kind of support you need right now.  When I divorced my first husband, I checked myself into a hospital and they kept me for 3 weeks.  It was a good decision.  Let us know what you decide and how things go.  Good luck, HeidiRose

Hello Twisted,
Right now I don't think you should worry about your husband, it sounds like a very stressful situation.
You need to take care of one thing at a time and right now the most important thing to do is to take care of yourself. Please don't hurt yourself anymore!
I hope you were able to speak with your pdoc last night.
If a hospital stay is required, do what you have to do to pull yourself together.
You can't attempt to tackle the other issue of what is going on with your husband right now until you get yourself in a healthier place.
Good Luck and please keep us posted. We are here for you!
