My husband has been diagnosed with depression. When he went to see the doctor about it, the doctor told him that it was not actually him who was depressed, it was me, and that I was pushing it onto him and saying he had it instead.
He also saw a psychiatrist, who said that his whole problem was his wife, and he should get a divorce. Neither of these people have ever met me.
My wonderful husband stuck up for me, and refuses to see either of these two again, but I must say, it is enough to make me wonder if they are right, and I am dragging him down, or something?
His mother once told me that she has never seen him so calm as he is since we met (he has had mental health problems before we met, too), and I am trying to hold onto the idea that she should know better than some guys who spoke to him for an hour at most- shouldn't she?
I just want to help my husband the best way possible, even if it means leaving him to his own devices, but I can't believe that leaving him would be that best way. Has anyone else ever had a situation like this? How did you solve it?
