Hi there nojewels..Welcome to HW..glad you found us
Concerning your husband..(a) you deserve a gold medal for endurance (b) you can take a horse to water but you cannot make it drink lol.
My suggestion is to be 'firm' with him this time..a gentle reminder of last time he was depressed make help.
One of the reasons for denial from him maybe that he doesn't want to put you thru this all over again and thinks that he can fight this all on his own (been there done that myself..sheesh think I would have learned by now lol)..
The other reason for demial could be that he really doesn't want to go down that road again either - it's exhausting (for both of you I am sure)..it really gets to the point where you get sooo dissappointed in yourself - and understanding why the heck it is happening is beyond comprehension.
I am sure you will have lots of helpful replies. Keep us posted with your progress.
Does your husband know about this website? Maybe if he read some of the postings and info available it just might be a step in the right direction..
