Blondie-Try and encourage him to get out with his buddies for some fun or go out and do stuff together and maybe he'll open up and talk about his feelings. I've even asked my husband who I know is depressed to see the Dr. Sorry to hear that guy said that about your husband.
He needs to find the strength within himself and fight through this. He sounds like a bully to your husband and hope your husband will get through this. Maybe he needs some physical exercise or try to get him to go for a walk with you. I really hate bullies at work it's a tough situation where your a good person and someone is always trying to make it tough on you or your husband I mean.
I've seen my big strong nice brother reduced by bullies at work until he had the union step in and he even had to get in hospital treatment for stuff that happened to him as a child because of all what happened triggered some bad memories with an abusive father and he even became diabetic because of release of cortisol with the stress and his whole family had to help him pull through this and he's done it! Get your husband's family involved too and you won't be so alone trying to pick up your broken man by yourself with this bully on his back. Praying for your husband's situation he will get through this. Take care. Sara
