My husband has been dealing with depression for probably his whole life. His whole family is on meds for it. Because he doesn't want to get "hooked" on a bunch of drugs, sometimes he doesn't take all that he is prescribed or the correct doses. He is very sad, cries, and sleeps 15-16 hours a day. He has gotten help in the past but has not followed through with anything. He is not violent or abusive. However, he's barely functioning at all. Nothing ever changes, nothing ever gets better for long. Had a serious talk with him yesterday, again. He stated that he hears me, again. He says he knows he has to "get his act together." I'm having grave doubts that this will ever happen. I feel like I'm dragging a chain through thick molasses every day, and I'm really scared now.
Should I step in and make a decision about his care? In-patient hospital? He says he isn't in crisis. He has seen numerous therapists, but he won't do the work, so therapy doesn't help much. What do I do now? I'm at my wits end!
