Yes husband last year told me he does not love me and has not loved me for 2 years because he does not understand my depression. Yes I have suffer with this since 2001 ( post natal depression) why oh why did he not seek help and find out about this earlier. Our daughter is now 13 years, even though I didn't want a family I went through with it. Our daughter was born prem because I had pre-eclampsia. I just feel my life is hell.

I'm a bit concerned that you also didn't seek help for both of you before now. It isn't only the person who HAS post natal depression that has to deal with it, but also everyone around them. Why are you blaming this solely on him? Why have you not sought counselling together? Are you still receiving help? Have you had extensive therapy for this?

I have had PND. I had issues for years, and it resulted in a complete breakdown. Yes, we struggled as a couple as well, but we sought counselling together (as well as I had intensive counselling and also was on medication for a time). Having had a complete breakdown, I do still sometimes have anxieties and issues - but as a couple we have had the therapy to understand and deal with it. There are ways couple can manage these things together rather than separately.

I'm sorry for what you are going through. May I ask, what treatment have you been getting for your depression?
