Sounds like there's probably something else going on with him. If he's still in bed and your talking about him being depressed then he needs to get some therapy and on meds to help deal with his levels of depression. Being on depression meds will help you, especially when you are having a lot of problems, but remember that there are other side effects to those meds. Your husband is really the only one that has to figure it out for himself in the long run. You can offer advice and support but in the end the decisions are up to him. At this point, asking him what he wants to do or go right now isn't the best thing, since he probably doesn't know what end is up due to the depression. I'd say get him on some meds and maybe therapy. THEN ask him and offer some advice or support as to where he wants to go with his career. There are plenty of other things to choose from that are a LOT less stressful than being a dr.
