I too wanted to welcome you to the forum, and I am very sorry that you and your family have been taken over by depression. It is a very harsh disease and it affects everyone around.
I don't know if this has been suggested by other members,but you should think about
getting into some type of counseling yourself. Just so that you know you are not going down the depression road yourself.
At some point if he is not willing to get the help he needs,then it might be time to look out for yourself. You can't force him,and it is not fair to you.
Here is some good info I found on the web...www.rd.com/content/how-to-cope-with-a-depressed-spouse/www.marriagebuilders.com/graphic/mbi5014_qa.html www.mental-health-matters.com/articles/article.php?artid=526
Please keep us updated and good luck.

Please remember,I am not a professional..I am just a person who is also fighting depression.
I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
