Things are getting better--we have been keeping the communication lines open. It is still a struggle at times, but I feel we are making progress.
Chris has been receptive to what I have to say, and he is listening. He still interprets my words as nagging or yelling when I am not raising my voice or using a different tone.
He has been treated for depression before, and is reluctant to be treated again. After some research (that was easy to get) I found out that the treatments he had before had REALLY bad side effects. That was over 10 years ago. I think there are new methods out now that are better. I think there may be more natural ways to treat his depression.
I know my hormones will come to an end in a few weeks...
