Cindy, of course there is hope, but hope is a good feeling, and right now the part of your brain that lets you feel good feelings is not functioning properly due to your illness. There are so many effective medicines and combinations of medicines that it is beyond a reasonable doubt that eventually something that is just right for you WILL be found. And there are other kinds of treatments and new drugs coming out all the time. ECT may be an option. If nothing else, you will heal with time even without treatment.
Ask your therapist, or scour the phone book. call govt, welfare agencies to find some telephone help line in your area so you'll have someone to talk to during those long dark nights.
It is at least possible that your doctor could explain depression to your husband, so that he would be more understanding. I can't understand why the vast majority of people just can't get a clue on depressive disorders.
And if you ever feel really, really close to ending it, think of your children, and go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. I wish I could assure you that you would be well treated there, but there is a good chance you would be, and at least you would not be alone and they would keep you alive, if not for yourself, then for ypur children.
