Oh wow hon...I am so sorry you are going through this!!!
After reading your posts, I think you are spiraling down with the depression yourself and you need to get yourself and your kids into therapy.
If your husband is under a doctors care,I think it is time to give that Doctor a call and tell him something is not working and you need help.
Then drop your husband off at the door and you go into another door and tell them YOU need help. Along with your kids.
You are very strong,and have alot on your can not expect to be the cheerleader for everyone while you yourself feel like you are going to explode.
Sometimes we have to make hard hard choices, and at this point in your life you have to realize that your husband is an adult and you have to take care of those kids.

Your husbands depression is taking the whole family down. And that is how it works,it should not be,but it is.
Please call the doctors today,get those little ones in therapy and then get yourself in therapy. You can not take care of the family unless you are healthy yourself.

Please keep us posted.

Hi Napaj...I cannot even begin to imagine what you and your children must be going thru on a daily basis..but this much I will say - it's truly time to put the brakes on and take control of your life! There would be no shame in dialling an emergency number when things get out of hand throwing couches around etc. - this is Not acceptable behaviour from anyone - sick or not - and especially when you have small children around! Shy has given you great advice..plz seek medical help and possibly hospital intervention for your husband ASAP!
