this is when you need to dig deep. yeah depression sucks, especially when it gets to this level. i think what could help you is trying to get her involved in things when she gets home. are you involved in her treatment, by this i mean do you now what medications she is on, and or now of what the doctors have suggested to help her improve. you are far from being a bad person, sounds more like you are at your wits end are are geninely concerned for your family. depression is a medical condition, and becuse of it's debilitating properties it has major effects on families. i think your kids need to know that mum is unwell, obvoiusly you would age appropriate language. i feel for you emmensly, and from someone who has been mentally unwell the majority of my life i also feel for your depressed partner. i send my healing compassion to you all. jamie
