First of all I want to welcome you to the forum,I am very glad that you found us and I know you will get the support that you are looking for.
Ok,hubby decided that you were depressed. How long had that went on before he insisted that you go to the doctor?
Now,please do not take this wrong ok...but, being a mod I see so many wives posting on here saying that their husbands had no idea that they were depressed,they did not care,they did not understand. Even ones that argue with their wives about
taking meds,basically saying they do not need them.
What I am getting at is this, he saw signs,he knew something was not right therefore he did what a good husband should do and that is stand by your side and try to help you the best he can.
I took Wellburtrin for several years. It does take 4-6 weeks for most any antidepressants to take full effect. Your body has to adjust.
Try to give it some more time,there is not a magic cure for depression, so therefore we are stuck with meds that take awhile.
Also, in order to know if you are even depressed without looking at the physical signs, you need to find out what is causing the depression. Do you think it is possible that it might be more than school and taking care of your kids? thinking back to your past? Frustrated with life in general?
going to a counselor and trying to figure out what it going on. You can go by yourself or try joint counseling so that you can let your husband hear what you need to say,and having someone else there to give their opinion?
Please stay strong and keep us posted.
