It sounds as if you might benefit from meds along with therapy.  I have major clinical depression, severe, along with GAD, severe & panic disorder.  It took meds to bring me up to functional status.

It sounds as if your Dh is being understanding.  But guys tend to want to fix things.  He can’t fix your depression any more than he could fix diabetes for you if you had that.

I think getting your depression treated properly will do a lot for your marriage.

It sounds like you have a medical issue in addition to the depression. I hope you are getting that taken care of. You need to speak to your doctor about both of them, especially if your therapist is not a psychologist. The PP is correct: you can’t blame yourself for having depression; it’s not something either of you can fix. GET HELP!
