hi all, im a married mum of 4, 20yrs ago, my hubby who is 42 was diagnosed as depressed and sectioned. he recovered after a spell in hospital and was then prescribed an antipsychotic pill which hes meant to stay on as advised by the doc. a month ago, he complained of feeling low in moods, so the doc prescribed him some antidepressants but took him off the antipsychotic drug, 4weeks later, hes started telling me i was grey with huge bags under my eyes, with 4 kids to look after, i assumed maybe i was just tired, but as the days has gone on, ive realised hes actually just seeing things. hes now signed off work, and hes been told to start taking his antipsychotics again. he seems to have very high episodes and i am beyond exhausted! ive held it together for the kids, but when they go to bed, i simply sit and sob, cant help it. im very active, which has been a godsend, but night times, i just feel fed up, angry, sympathy for him, the works! anyone else feels like this and can advise me how to help him and help myself? thanks for reading

I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through. I know it's difficult to get through hard times when you feel like you are all alone with nobody to talk to. It sounds to me like you are a great supportive mother and wife. I would suggest seeking therapy as a couple. It's very important that you take care of yourself just as much as you take care of the rest of your family. Although your husband is going through a hard time with depression, it sounds like you are suffering as well. He may have no idea what a toll everything is taking on you. I think a therapist will help guide you both in the direction that you want and need to be.

I hope this helps! Keep your head up.. things will get better! *hugs*
