FEELING BETTER BUT HUSBANDS DEPRESSION IS WRECKING OUR RELATIONSHIP
After being severely injured in a motor vehicle accident one year ago, and basically went through hell with pain, and narcotic pain meds and oxyneo. I am happy to report that I am completely off the narcotic pain meds and I am back to work full time with no more pain. I completed a six week physio and rehab program and am feeling so good, that I have my life back. It has taken me so long to get there, but I am at a place where I want to be.
Now for the kicker...my husband has become so depressed and negative that I am contemplating leaving him. He has become so negative and name calling and he is dragging me in the dumps with him. All he talks about is death and how slowly he is dying and that he hates everything in his life, so that must mean me too. He refuses to go to the doctor and possibly go back on anti depressants, he was taking them about a year ago but stopped when he realized that they were for depression and he is not depressed at all - so he says.
I am thinking that at my next doctor visit I will tell our doctor to talk to him about going back on meds, because in all honestly, I don't know how much longer I can live with him. I have told him that if he hates me so much and our life together that he can leave, and he got all upset when I said this, but all he talks about is how he hates his life. He has a good job, he has health issues but for the most part is feeling good, he has lots of friends, and we have a nice life together or so I thought we did, now I am not sure about anything with him.
I am just getting really tired of all his negativity and talk of death, when I am feeling so good, he is bringing me down on a daily basis. Not sure what has changed but the last month has been the worst to have to live with him. Maybe he is upset that now I am such a more happier person since being back at work full time, and feeling so much better from my motor vehicle accident.
Any advice would be appreciated...seriously I am not sure how much longer I am going to take his mean behavior....and mistreatment of me with his name calling and depressing talk.
