Good day Family
I really need your help in assisting my husband who is refusing to seek help for his depression. The thing is he does not believe in talking to a professional, his thing is where would he start?
My husband is so depressed on the rare occasions that he tries to talk about it he sometimes sobs like a baby..he is not satisfied about everything..his work (feels like he is a failure) his family life( so worried about what kind of a father he will be to his son, he is currently 4 years old) he believes life is not worth it wishes he could die. he has resorted to alcohol as an escape mechanism..he tries to stop for a few days but then goes back again..currently he drinks a bottle of wine everyday. He is such a respected member of the community and nobody knows about all this except me..as he pretends to be okay when he is around people.
Is there anyone with a similar problem and how are they coping and how to they offer support?
