Depression From a Spouse’s Point of View

Anne Wheaton, yes Wil’s wife, has written an insightful piece about dealing with a loved one’s depression. What I like about it is the honesty she shows in talking about what chemical depression can look like to a spouse. It doesn’t often look like depression, it looks like anger and frustration, etc. Depression symptoms are not always about sitting in bed and looking sad, they can show themselves in many ways, including anger, an avoidance of every day, common activities, even a loss of interest with things that once were a big part of our lives.

Thanks Anne, and Wil for sharing your story, and for showing those suffering from depression that there is hope and help out there!
