That was such an inspiring and wise response you posted to Lakegirl. I'm so happy for you that you are free of a situation that brought you down. I also would say that it really is important to separate what is depression and what is depression brought on by spouses who are not treating us like we deserve to be treated: respectfully, and with kindness and tenderness.
Lakehouse girl, keep posting here. As I'm sure you know, it's important to have an outlet and a lifeline in times like you're facing, and this is a great support group. Karen and Jamie are always here with big caring hearts and good suggestions. In fact, I joined this forum a couple years ago due to depression related to my marriage and Karen's posts were my bright spots in a day and helped me get through that hard time.
