My husband is a Christian. He has been out of the word and has not had a great walk in the last 6 months or so. The other day I was telling him I need my Depression medicine again, I feel. He said he and I quote "I do not and will not support your drug addiction" I was dumbfounded, as he has seen how I can be without my Depression and ADHD medicine.
I had a baby 13 weeks ago and I have since gone back on my ADHD medicine but not my depression due to the fact that my hormones had not balanced out and I was still on an emotional high due to the baby.
It really hurt my feelings. My husband was raised to believe (from his father who is a pastor) that emotional illnesses are not real, it is weak people who listen to the lies of Satan and if you have Jesus than why do you need medicine.
I just don't know what to do to convince him it is real, that medicine is needed, and that I am not listening to satan? How should I approach him in a godly Manner?
Thanks for your advice and support.
