I am 48, going on 49 years old. I've had mild undiagnosed depression most of my adult life. The last 2 years seem to have gotten progressively worse, although I am not sure at times whether it's caused by me internally or by things in my life.
I have a very non-supportive wife. Her response when I'm down is to "suck it up" and "other people have real problems", and finally "Just be happy".
She keeps telling me I need to get on medication, which I probably do. I tell her I need her to be more supportive of recognizing that her harshness makes things worse for me, and she responsds with "not going to coddle you">
I am lost in what to do, how to do it, and whether to just ignore her harshness, or if I just need to be medicated so I don't care anymore
