My husband is normally a happy guy. He loves me and our 4 kids to death. He generally sacrifices anything he can to give more to our kids. Over the past several months I've noticed a change in my husband. He slowly started to get angrier and angrier. On a daily basis now he wakes up angry. Finally about 3 weeks ago we got into a huge argument and we didn't talk for 3 days...I should say I didn't talk to him for 3 days. He claimed that he talks to me all the time, but once a stopped talking he finally realized that we don't talk about anything important...it's all kid talk. Since then he's gotten even worse! I don't want him to be alone with our kids, because he's so angry and he gets frustrated with them so quickly. The days that he is alone with them because I'm working I walk into a complete disaster. This past weekend he did NOT move from the couch. He's finally admitted he's depressed and has sought help, however, he's active duty Navy and is a submariner. If they medicate him he automatically he can't be a submariner anymore which is where things get complicated. He has 16 months left on his contract and thinks he should just suffer through it until then so he doesn't get discharged. Does anyone have any advice? I don't know what else to do. I'm at a loss!
