Love Him or Leave Him

Posted on | May 11, 2015 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
My husband (72) seems to be chronically depressed or have a mood disorder.  In the last 12 years, 4 different doctors have prescribed antidepressants which he refuses to take.  He sleeps most of the day, bathes about every 2 weeks, has no friends and his adult children from out-of-state have never visited during the 14 years we have been married.  My doctor tells me that my husband has made his decision and may enjoy this way of escape.  What can I do?  I feel that life is being sucked out of me.  I am 67.

Dear Not Ready:
You need to seek counseling for yourself. If he refuses help, you have some hard choices to make.
