I have been diagnosed with depression and while I hid it from myself and others my wife knew it long before I did however, I can honestly say that I'm not surprised with that diagnosis with all that has happened in my life. Add onto to that the fact that I am my wife's caregiver, and caregivers are at a much higher risk of developing depression. I go to see a prescriber at the end of August to see about getting me on medication to help with the symptoms. My wife also has depression secondary to her multiple sclerosis. So I do have her that understand what it is that I am going through and not a spouse who just would not understand because they have never gone through it or are going through it.
