Hi, my husband recently attempted suicide (about 4 weeks ago) he is currently in an inpatient treatment center-due to be discharged from the hospital. He will not be returning home (he is in the military) at this point, but possibly in the near future. Our contact is minimal, I am very angry and initially I was limiting our contact so that I would not stress him out more or overwhelm him, I kind of just carried on as though things were normal and I was alone. Lately, I am very angry to the point I am not interested in continuing with our marriage, I am resentful and feel that he is only concerned about his feelings, and needs. I am struggling with my emotions and it is destroying me...I feel that I cannot trust him, he will flake out on me at the drop of a dime, just tons of emotions running all over. I know that he needs me, or someone at this point, and I am not doing a good job. I don't know how I can help him while I am feeling this way. I cannot bring myself to be supportive of him, I just cannot get over the feeling of betrayal. Please offer some guidance, what can I do? Do marriages usually last after a suicide attempt? What can I do to help him? How can I be supportive? Should I be keeping the lines of communication open, or should I continue letting him be, so to speak?
**The reason I mentioned he is currently in the military is that is the reasoning behind his suicide attempt, he wanted out of the army and he was depressed...now we are in an entirely different situation.
