I feel very badly for you. I think it is so difficlt for men to admit they are depressed. My husband and I had much the same dynamic. That "teasing" could come under the realm of verbal abuse. Anyway, I had a "breakdown" of sorts. Depression, panic attacks. The psychiatrist talked with my husband and explained that the home environment could create a situation like that. Sure, I had the predisposition to it but living in that kind of evironment brought it to the fore. My husband, much to his credit, is now on medication for his depression, and, believe it or not, is now going to a therapist. I would never have believed it possible before last year. I think men show their depression in different ways than women do. For example, my husband immersed himself in his work, was often irritable with the kids, unable to relax, critical of everything I did, or didn't do. Now he is much more relaxed and it has helped our family so much. At 40 he wouldn't have done it, at 46 he was able to.

I can imagine it must be very difficult for you. My heart goes out to you. m
