I've been wondering more and more what role depression is playing in my wife's mood, lack of libido, and general worldview lately.
She's never been the optimist I am, typically more of a realist. But lately it's pure pessimism. I recognize that her responsibilities have increased in the last 6 months and I try to make it easier for her, but she keeps treating me worse and worse.
I'm finally beginning to wonder if depression is the problem -- which if it is, is a far bigger problem than our mismatched libidos.
Does anyone here have experience in how to bring this up politely & non-confrontationally to a spouse? Given that anything I say she takes confrontationally, I can't imagine the right way to approach this in a productive manner.
Ideally -- if that's what it is -- I wish we could tackle this her and me against her depression. Not me against her as it has been too often lately.
