Depression is a miserable bitch.

Posted by anonymous at January 9, 2012
Tags: Health  2012 January  Relationship

Present: I am 25, married, with a baby on the way, have a beautiful, loving wife, a house, a car, an education, a business, tonnes of amazing friends, a family who loves me and what would seem to be, not a care in the world.

I know what you must be thinking; what is my problem? The truth is, I don't have any, per se, other than that my wife is battling severe depression. She has attempted suicide twice, and doesn't get out of bed. This illness has consumed her. I live in a constant state of worry for her yet nothing I do has any affect. She is in therapy and on medication(a struggle finding the proper dosage, but pregnancy hormones are a bitch), but is getting worse. I would never leave her, I love her with all my heart. I am worried my child will inherit this disease. I am running out of patience.

Depression is a miserable heartless bitch.

Somebody out there please tell me there is a light at the end of her tunnel.

My dear man, postpartum depression is not hereditary so you needn't worry about it passing on to your kids! Consult a natural nutritionist immediately. Too often a doctor will prescribe drugs when the culprit is a vitamin deficiency so make sure you are investigating both directions. Try Natural News online. That's Mike Adams' site. Do an internal search there for articles about new mothers and you may be surprised what you discover. Knowledge is power. It's the only earthly power you can be sure of because you get to keep it no matter what. Next time you're spending money, get a juicer and see to it both you and your wife are getting fresh raw fruit and vegetable juices daily. Neither of you are thinking straight right now and believe it or not, a rush of nutrition will help you.

Its not post-partum if shes pregnant. Theres a reason why shes not happy. The answer is simple if you care to ask questions, listen and provide the physical/emotional support she needs. She is going through some radical body changes right now and she needs displays of and lots of affection right now!

use the drugs but try to solve it in other ways - go to vactions

talk to her try to find why is she deprresed does she know why shes deppresed ?

again if its this bad she might need to take drugs but do all you can to solve it without them

try to help her do fun stuff and talk talk talk

You didn't say if the suicide attempts were during her pregnancy? I agree with the above comments regarding nutrition and talking, although the staying in bed sounds like it's deep rooted, maybe planning the baby's arrival will help decorating the nursery shopping for baby clothes etc,

Finding the root of the depression will be key.

Often keeping busy can help. If her doctor or psychiatrist contraindicates any of these suggestions then you should obviously ignore this... BUT, consider the following:

1. Find activities that are incremental and absorbing. Decorating a nursery is big. How about reading books? Some couples buy two copies of baby and expecting books then try to 'race' each other through them. Try discussing it too.

2. Buy her a camera. Some people like documenting their days/times/depressions. Ask her to show you the pictures. Don't force it, but it can be helpful.

3. Don't wallow in the depression. Don't let it be present in every conversation, etc. Think of the positive and the fun. Don't acknowledge it or treat it as a taint over every activity. Cook dinner together or do a chore together and don't acknowledge a 'down' comment, except by making a positive comment. Don't let her think you're not listening, but don't let the mood go her direction. Some people can be baited out of depression.
