Hi, this is my first time here and I’m struggling with what to say, mainly because I have to actually say it out loud!
My husband has only just been diognosed officially but he has clearly been suffering a while. It’s got worse since we’ve had our children.
He has always been pretty moody though which is what we always thought it was he was just a bit of a grump but as it’s got worse I forced him to go to the Drs.
I know it’s the illness but he’s becoming so hard to live with, he is so miserable and grumpy and moody and snaps and shouts at our 3 year old all the time. He takes no pleasure at all from him and often ignores him and our new baby. He is quite aggressive and we argue alit.
I want to support him but I struggle to know where his depression starts and his personality stops. I’m finding it really hard to want to be around him at the moment. He is no help at all with the kids m, won’t get up at night with the baby or do anything for them and when I complain (he’s always been this way) he gets angry and says I should understand and support him because he finds the children too difficult.
I don’t even think there is any advice anyone can offer I’m just ranting really.
