Friday, July 10, 2009

A person who pains from depression doesn't inspect benefit in the universe also can't admire being liked and assisted by their partner. They don't esteem what is being done for them and certainly they don't display thankfulness. That is the inference why Depression is one of the biggest factors that a respectable marriage goes discomposed and twists into a invalid marriage.

It is very important to understand that depression often times effects men and women very differently. This can be very harmful because someone might miss the signs of depression in their partner (because their experience of depression has completely opposite symptoms).

We will present to you how to identify 4 signs of depression that are different in men and in women so that you will be able to help your partner get the proper care and restore your marriage.

1. Women are more aware and in tune with their feelings and will verbalize that they feel hopeless or lost. On the other hand men, who might view such an emotion as a character fault and weakness (Even though that I'm a man, I still can't figure out why men view emotions as a weakness) usually will complain about other things but not mention their feelings.

2. A second difference between men and women is that men tend to lose their appetite and eat less when they are depressed while women tend to eat more when they suffer from depression.

3. Moods. The classical picture of a depressed person is someone who walks slowly, despondently, and he holds his chin so low that it almost scrapes the pavement. This is true concerning women's depression. However concerning men it is completely different. Some of the major signs of depression in men are anger, aggression, irritability, and sometimes even violence.

4. Changes in sleep patterns. The way that depression effects sleeping patterns is typically different between men and women . Women tend to sleep more when they are depressed while men tend to have problems sleeping; waking up in the middle of the night, waking up early in the morning and not able to fall back asleep, or having trouble falling asleep.

I think my husband is depressed. He constantly picks fights with me. I stay quiet because it takes two to fight. I used to get caught up in it, but I'm learning how to not react. He's mean to me and stays in bed when he's not working. We never have sex. I don't know what to do... stay or leave. He makes me so uncomfortable and intimidates me. He's done this with his coworkers too. It's hard to parent around him because he makes everything so uncomfortable. My child is picking up on it. Even the dogs fear him. He thinks intimadating people is a good thing, but it's quite the opposite. Trust me. I'm not perfect, but he's warped. I say he's warped because I was 8 months pregnant with a fractured ankle. He still made me walk down two flights of stairs to take the dogs out. Only a real sicko would do that knowing your wife is carrying your child. At least, I think he is warped sometimes.

He's a doctor and has his boards coming up. I don't know why he's not studying. He's either in bed, playing video games, looking to fight me or being resentful he's helping to take care of our child. I love him, but something has to change or I'll leave again. I don't want my daughter exposed to this. He has so much potential and great qualities, but he doesn't see it and I can't make him see it. Help. I don't know what to do. I don't cry anymore because I've realized I cannot be blamed for everything and anything. I've got a life to live, with my daughter and dogs. If he'd join, that would be great. I'm no longer picking battles to win because there is a war going on in his mind. There is no point. I used to be mad, but now I just feel sorry for him. Should I stay or leave? I don't think he realizes that I love him and he's not an easy person to love. He's defensive and always ready to attack. I am always walking on eggshells.
