Hi I have been reading a lot of the posts regarding depressed partners. My husband left our family home, me & our 4yr daughter nearly 3 weeks ago. He has been diagnosed with depression for some time but only recently (2 weeks ago) agreed to start taking anti-depressants, it seems that these haven't yet had any effect. His has been to counselling on and off and if anything this seems to have hardened his extreme way of looking at life. In his mind I am the sole cause of his depression, my behaviour has been "monstruous" for the past 5 yrs and he cannot forgive me. I am no saint, I have lost my temper, got frustrated, I can be bossy too but I am not the evil witch he believes me to be. I have never felt so despised and hated in my life. We are talking (sort of) as he is seeing our daughter, but nothing I say is right, I'm either "too frivolous" or being accused of blackmailing him. What I am to do? Just waiting seems so useless and the practical reality of being apart is taking us down the path of separation regardless. Any advice would be appreciated.
