So, I guess some progress has been made. The day I posted this thread, I told DH that I couldn't take things as they were and he needed to get help for his depression or leave by the end of the year. After he got really mad, we calmed down and had a productive talk. He's still resistant to therapy and medication but he has agreeed to try to work on his issues on his own. I'm not sure he can do it alone, but I guess he has to figure that out for himself. We reached an uncomfortable truce.
The holidays started off pretty rocky... Dh and DSS were really wierd and depressive last wednesday. I felt kind of let down b/c I'd been home all day that day and made cookies, got hte house ready, etc and then I felt really let down.
It did get better. We all went to MIL's for the holiday. It was a bit uncomfortable for me, but it wasn't b/c of anything DH did or didn't do...my MIL is very difficult and we had, well, and interesting time with her... but that's another thread.
So, I'm starting the new year very, very cautiously optimistic. I'm trying really hard to work on the things that I know need to change. I do see some changes in DH.
Thank you everyone for all of your support and kind thoughts. MDC mamas really are the best people!
