My depression is a huge struggle for not only me but my husband too. I hate that, but yes I’ve said it. My mental health truly affects those nearest and dearest to me. It affects how much I get done each day around the house. It affects whether or not we even get out of the house. It affects our sex life. It affects my husbands stress level and his happiness. I feel so very guilty on a regular basis but, fortunately, i am lucky enough to have a man that is patient and understanding. I am so grateful to have him in my life!
