I am glad you have thought about seeing someone. When you do decide to go, I would love to hear about it.
The "More Help" section can be tricky to find. Here is some instructions: Once you are logged in, click on the "Home" button on the top menu. Once on the program homepage you will notice "More Help" in a menu below the top menu. Once in the "More Help" section you will notice a number of butterflies. The second and third butterflies focus on relationship focused CBT. The other butterflies are also helpful. I recommend working on one session a week, so that you do not overwhelm yourself. I hope the instructions made sense. If you still have trouble let me know.
Hope to hear more from you soon!
I'm sorry to hear you feel you are losing connection with your wife. After 17 years together, I can understand why this loss of connection would be upsetting. It sounds like you have tried to communicate your concerns, but the problems still persist. Have you two considered couple's counselling? A counsellor can help you to identify and address unhealthy or unfulfilling patterns. I highly recommend. You may also want to check out the Relationships section under "More help." In my opinion, relationships are always a work in progress. I know the lack of connection is painful now; but, this discomfort may push you two to put in the necessary work that will make your relationship stronger. Things can get better.
I’m on here today because I feel out of control. I feel so lost in my marriage, I’m having a very hard time trying to be the supportive and fun loving wife that I used to be to my wife. I’ve become insecure and somewhat controlling because our connection is gone and when I communicate that to her I feel she just doesn’t understand where I’m coming from. She just says things to make me happy but then that causes issues because she doesn’t follow through on what she says.
My head keeps asking, after 17 years how did we end up this way? I’ve talked to her so much about this that I feel I’m loosing my mind. I feel so sad and empty.
I"m new here as of today, not really sure if i"m depressed or just partially. I"m here to find out if I can find out if my relationship is salvageable? My girlfriend (or ex) , is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. I just want things to be where we started. The best part is we still talk everyday.I know that is what got me here. Just looking for the help I need. Thanks
Depression can make a big impact on all our relationships. We can be more irritable, appear more lethargic and disinterested. We also may want to isolate from other people. Depression itself can effect our sex drives but also, many antidepressants effect our sex drives too! It can be really hard to manage healthy relationships with depression - but it is not impossible.
To get the conversation started, how is depression impacting your relationship(s).
