I am sorry that you are going through such a difficult time. It is so hard to live with somebody who is depressed and is an alcoholic. They tend to want to blame others for their problems. Don't let his problems become yours. Yes, easier said than done, but doable.
Have you tried getting ahold of the department of human services? They might be able to help you financially and with medical and a food card. That would take some of the stress off of you. Your husband may even be able to get some disability for his depression and alcoholism. Not sure, but hopefully there are some programs out there that could help you.
As long as he isn't taking his meds, he is not going to get any better. And will probably come up with a lot of excuses to drink. And the drinking is only going to make the depresion worse, as it is a depressant in itself.
I would recommend for you to see a counselor. You really could use the support and guidance. So if you can, please try. There are programs within mental health that can hook you up with a counselor at low or no cost to you. So do check into that.
Coming here is a good thing to. I forgot to welcome you to the forum. I think you will find that there are a lot of people here that do understand and it will ease your mind some. Please take care of you.
