I had a quick question. It has been almost 2 years since DDay and my wife and I are doing great. She was diagnosed with Major Clinical Depression and since she has been on the correct medication our life has changed so much for the better.
My question is regarding our child who is 8. I am sure this tramatic experience affected him. He remembers it and remembers my wife moving out etc. Lately I have been noticing him kind of depressed and hard on himself. I realized we have been working so hard on ourselves and marriage we have stopped to think about how it affected him. It is just starting to show up. He has been really down lately and beating himself up. I am worried he may have depression too.
Not sure if we should take him to a councelor, should I talk with him about the seperation, I feel like I am going to have to hide why we seperated (I feel like it is going to be blamed on me and I am going to be the bad guy but oh well.) I can't tell my 8 year old son that mom cheated on me with some other guy cause she was unhappy in the marriage because I played music and was gone two nights a week. Any advice would be appreciated.
