Title: How mental illness affects the well spouse
Post by: sarahruth on March 10, 2019, 07:18:49 PM
The longer we go through this journey, the longer I am starting to get worse like my husband. This is tough. Really tough. I am drawn to depression because everything is so hard. I am the breadwinner and the family everything. Tough times and it is really hard. Going on 5 years now. Hard to not become like them.

Hello Sarahruth. Sorry to hear about your struggles. I agree with you that the illness can be as hard on the spouse as it is on the sufferer. Hopefully your husband will find a way to get better and ease the pressure that you are under. Take Care. paul m
