Tired of being strong
I had a love marriage 6yrs ago. My husband is under treatment for depression and anxiety for the past 3yrs. We have stayed together through all of it with our love still going strong. If there is anything worst than suffering from depression, it's being the only support system for a person going through it.
You have to be strong no matter what happens, you just can't let the person know you are falling apart. Because for him, you are the only hope.
There are nights I have cried myself to sleep and woken up next morning, hide my puffy eyes with make up, put up a brave face and go to work. Then there are nights I have waited for the morning without batting an eyelid, because I am scared that he would take his life if I sleep off.
I run the family both financially and emotionally. He is not working because of his health. Being an introvert I am, my only best friend is my husband. Not having anyone to share my feelings gets me emotionally exhausted. I feel my emotional and physical needs are not taken care of.
I have not had sex in the last 3yrs.
