    Default Why did I expect actual support.

    I just bit the bullet and told my DH I have PND and suicidal thoughts. He asked me two things "do you still love me?" and "is that why you googled your ex's name?"
    I asked for a response to what I had said, while crying, and he said "I don't know what to say" then got up and went to the kitchen to cook without another word I feel devastated, I don't know why I expected more, I didn't even get a hug or told it will be ok. I don't know what to do now, I feel so alone and not even worth his time of a conversation

    Hey, I'm sorry to hear that. I'm not going to try and give you any advice or anything, just wanted you to know someone heard you. Perhaps your DH needs a little time to come to grips with it. Good luck.

    It's so good that you've admitted you have pnd and urge you to get professional help. As for your DH he might not know how to respond... It sounds like he's insecure in the relationship (judging by his questions), so there might be the need for some counseling.
    Its only the first step but its in the right direction things will get better for you and your family!!
