What Happened When I Stopped Reminding My Husband
We have now been together five years and married for nearly two of them. The time we've spent together has been amazing but truly defines an "emotional roller coaster. That I was powerless to change how you felt. When you reached your lowest low, it was difficult for me to not take personally your statements asking me to simply let you be and that you needed to work through it on your own.
That there was nothing I could do to be a better husband or companion and help your sadness and anxiety go away and that, yes, you were crying, but it was nothing I had done. At that time, I'm sad to say, your assurances fell on deaf ears. When you reached your lowest low, you said something to me I will never be fully equipped to handle. I couldn't kill myself only because I know how much it would hurt you.
It broke my heart. In one sweeping statement, you managed to communicate exactly how much you value me and at the same time how much value you have placed on yourself.
Take me to:
The frustration that comes with not being able to tell your depressed wife how much you love her, how each day is brighter with her in it, and instead knowing she will simply smile and not fully believe you or not realize what you're trying to communicate is truly one of the hardest feelings I've ever had to overcome.
In a word, I felt helpless. Leading up to our wedding and even a few months past it, I felt absolutely immobilized. I firmly believed there was nothing I could do. I felt trapped in a cycle of trying to understand your depression, to getting frustrated when it got too bad, and finally returning to wanting nothing more but to help you feel better.
A truly unenviable position for any new husband. But today is a brighter day.
