Thank you so much for you web site and contributions. I have put up with my husband's anger and childish behavior for 16 years. We have been in couple's counseling for 12 out of those 16 years. He has major depression and self-medicates with alcohol and has used pot in the past. He goes on and off antidepressants. When he is on them he is much better.
I have tried to keep the family together and work out our problems with minimal success but my children have stress conditions from all of the turmoil.
This web site has given me the courage to stop enabling his negative behaviors. He has to solve his own problems. I have spent too much time and energy trying to help him and make things O.K. I need to think of a brighter future for myself and my children. It's not easy but there is a way out.
