Grief is full of pain and anguish like that will take us directly to depression when we’re honest enough or not strong enough to not pretend that things aren’t like they were.
Depression can be a devastating illness. For very severe depression, studies show that antidepressants appear to be rather helpful in alleviating symptoms.
Living with a depressed wife can make a marriage feel like living in hell. Her condition may make her unresponsive to your romantic advances and the need to be left alone. Furthermore, she may not feel like talking to you and before you know it, your relationship suffers a great deal.
