    Default Depression/anxiety. Does your other half understand?

    Hugs to you and everyone else on the thread who is dealing with the similar issue. I was a sufferer with DS1 and hoping not to be with DS2. DH is becoming more understanding but at first it was hard too. Every time I talked to him I felt like he's telling me I've failed and I'm making things harder for him. Like a burden. But once my head was clearer I thought that maybe he just didn't know how to help and it frustrated him. Still wish he'd be a bit more considerate and empathetic in how he communicates, but I don't think he will learn that overnight.

    I can't agree more with London about the journal. Or at least, it worked for me. And talking it out too.

    Default Depression/anxiety. Does your other half understand?

    Hugs Hun I know how awful and debilitating anxiety can be... I don't think people can understand the extent of how bad it can be and how it affects our every day life (we are usually quite good at hiding it from others too).

    My DH doesn't understand as such.. He's not really sure what to say when I tell him how bad it is and how sad it makes me feel that I cannot handle it sometimes and he tries to support and say the right things but really doesn't help much at all. I don't blame him either really. Like I've mentioned, until you have walked the anxiety/depression walk, you really don't understand what goes on and what happens in someone's mind, it would be hard to try support someone, most of the time they don't know what to do or say.

    It doesn't help us sufferers though

    Default Re: Depression/anxiety. Does your other half understand?

    How are you feeling today Ffrench? I tried to reply to this thread the other day but deleted it... it's topic that's very close to home ATM. I'm going through a low patch and dh doesn't know how to handle it. I don't think he understands. He never brings it up, and if I start talking about it all he says is "Mmm"... I just end up keeping it all in and we carry on like normal. It's very draining.

    If you EVER want to vent to someone who gets it (have been an ambulance ride close to being admitted once before), PM me. I've just gone back on antidepressants after 11 months off them.
