So my FWW was recently diagnosed with depression. I just had some thought about it:
My thoughts are... AWESOME!!! I am a bit relieved. She has had constant mood changes since our son was born 8 YEARS AGO. Her sleep patterns have always been horrible, she has always been exhausted. Our sex life has been suffering for years. I did some research to try and understand the illness and I have no doubts she has been battling this silently for the past 8 out of the 9 years we have been together. I am not saying this is going to fix everything I am just excited to see what our life will be like when she is balanced. (Usually I would try and set up all the appointments, do all the research, set out a plan for her on how she is going to tackle this and try and solve her problems ) This is her battle I am just going to be there for her when she needs me.
Her thoughts - She is really excited and hopeful that the medication will help her feel normal again. She told me that we have been working so hard on our marriage if this piece of the puzzle can help her get her energy, libido, esteem and overall positive thoughts back she cant wait to see where we can take our marriage. She also thanked me for being a supportive husband. She said she is VERY lucky to have me as a partner in this life.
