Living with depressive person?
Hi to all,
just as the title says; wife (28, as me) is going through a depression, she is being treated by a professional and she is taking medications, but thruth to be told I don't see much of an improvement (this has been going on for some 3-4 months now).
How do you live with it? Has anybody experienced it? I'm starting to get guilt feelings, even though she and the doctor say I'm not to blame. I try as best as I can to support her, show her my love, do whatever I can, but this feeling of her is just not going away. I feel powerless and frustated.
To make things worse i just started my master degree (full time student), so my time available for her and her daughter will greatly diminish.
Sometimes she accuses me of not understanding how she feels, and she's right. I have never gone through something like that, so I can't possibly "know", I can only "immagine" as best as I can.
How do you cope with this kind of situations? Any experiences out there? Help...
