> I think the one thing in common in all of this is to take action. Do not wait a moment to start putting things into action. That's what shame and stigma will do to you -- make you want to wait, to delay, to see if things will clear up on their own. Sure, there is probably some chance between a sure thing and diddly-squat that it will clear up on its own. In the mean time, you suffer. So don't. Don't wait, don't let your husband cave into feelings of inadequacy, fight the lethargy -- go out and take some positive action. My money is on things getting far worse if you just let it lie, and taking action then will be all that much harder.

Thanks for the encouragement. The hardest part of this is that I know what he's going
through because I have suffered with the same thing myself. The only difference is that I do not work at the moment so I am not having to deal with a boss.
How do you convince someone to seek treatment when they think they're not depressed? They pawn it off on stress and think it will go away? Well, thanks for your input. It is good to know there are others who have gone through this too.
