I need to vent. My DH is driving me crazy. He has always been a very difficult man to live with. He is a homebody and very pessimistic. He gets ticked off very easily. He is a type 1 diabetic and he doesn’t take care of himself properly. He is depressed but won’t admit it and won’t take AD. He refuses to see a counselor (and I am not prepared to give him an ultimatum).
He got angry at me on Christmas day and we have barely spoken since. We were up at his aunt’s together but I drove him home and came back up because I love it up here and I needed a break from him.
I want to make my marriage to work but I’m at my wit’s end. His family all know what he is like and they are very supportive of me. I try not to talk about him with my family because I know they would tell me to leave him. I don’t want to do that I want to keep my family together.
I know that he is also grieving but he doesn’t talk about it to me or anyone else. How do you help someone who doesn’t think they need help?
Did anyone else have difficult times with their spouse after losing their child? I think it has gotten worse since we lost Lily. We still have another child together and I really want to keep our family together.
I know this doesn’t quite fit under grief and loss but I think I’d feel better posting with you ladies then posting this on the relationship board.
Any ideas or words of wisdom?
