What to do if your spouse is depressed

What to do if your spouse is depressed?

When one’s spouse is depressed, it automatically strains your marriage. It’s not easy to live with a depressed, unhappy, critical, and a negative partner. At the same time, it is not impossible to take your partner to get help from a psychiatrist.

Dr Jay Baer, a psychist and director of ambulatory services, said to Live Science “Depression varies tremendously in severity, but it has many behavioural impacts that can profoundly affect all significant relationships.”

One may not know how to identify that their partners are in depression and lend their support and help towards them. According to tiny step, one cannot identify the signs of depression easily and need to observe them carefully.  If your partner is a very social person and always mingles around with people, but suddenly, starts to distance themselves from everyone to be alone most of the time, then that is something to worry about. 

Similarly, if they are not able to wake up early in the morning and rather give in sleeping due to exhaustion. At times, they may not take care of themselves by not shaving, grooming out or not working out— these are the signs of depression. If you notice such signs in your spouse, assure them that you are there for them and be patient and caring towards them. Instead of smothering them with love, try to show that you care about them, by depicting small loving gestures throughout the day. It doesn’t necessarily have to be physical attention, but small loving words to show your appreciation would do, even if they don’t reciprocate the same.
