Life is hard

As I said in a previous blog, my wife suffers from depression. Tonight she got upset just because I said money is going to be tight the rest of the month. Now she is in her room sleeping. She will not come out for dinner. So I ask you, what is a person to do.

Was this a something to get upset about? She has stopped taking he medicine. and I can't get her to start again. She needs help but I don't know what to do anymore.

To top that off I have to depend on her as a caregiver for me. I have ALS, which is a neuromusclar disease. I need her to do certain things and when she gets like this I have to care for myself, which is extremely hard for me.

I know what angelofmercy5 is going through with her husband. People have posted that they have gone through depression and have overcomed it.

I just want ask for some advice and see what people think.

sorry to hear of your illness, and that of your wife's - i do know that depression, and/or bipolar disorder, can only be controlled by medication . . . if your wife won't go back on her meds, you may want to call her doctor.
good luck to you both,
