my husband suffers from depression that doesn't respond very well to treatment. It has been extremely hard on our marriage, as he tends to blame me for alot of things, and doesn't like it when circumstances are beyond his control. He has anger issues.
He is on Effexor 675 mgs,(I know, that is a HUGE dosage) under psychiatric care. One thing that is helping him a bit is reading about the different personality types. This has really opened his eyes to how he is, and he isn't liking what he sees.
He also is going to get some counceling for things from childhood that haven't been dealt with. I myself, and getting counceling to help me cope and to learn how to deal with my emotions when things are bad. I am ill myself, as my daughter is too. Stress is the worst thing for us.
I would strongly recommend counceling.
