hi people, this situation isn't funny. my husband will lose his jobs in 3 weeks. fact. i have been ill for years and that's true. i have recently discovered i am a coeliac sufferer so am trying to adjust. my health is poor, it will get better but can take up to 5 years! my husband applied for a job recently, he has worked there for 18 months to be stitched by 1 person. this is no joke he's exceptionally down and depressed. question: how do i support him? i feel ugh today, i suffer with terrible sinus infections and my face and head are really sore. so how do i do this without getting ill? please this is no joke. ill health sets my depression off. both of us depressed? dreadful!

    Hi Sam - convince him to seek medical help, see the doc, be assessed, etc. A psychologist, counsellor or therapist can help him move through the disappointment. Are there no avenues for him to address the betrayal by that person who stitched him up?

    SAM, IM SO SORRY FOR YOUR SITUATION. TAKE SOME COMFORT THAT YOU BOTH HAVE EACH OTHER TO LEAN ON. THAT MAY NOT SOUND LIKE MUCH, BUT ITS A BIG DEAL WHEN YOU'RE ALONE. ALSO KNOW THE LORD JESUS IS WITH YOU DURING THIS STRUGGLE. HE LOVES YOU BOTH AND WANTS YOU TO BE COMFORTED BY HIS PRESENCE IN YOUR LIFE. I AM ALONE, SO MY BIBLE & PRAYER HAVE HELPED ME A LOT. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU MY FRIEND. BLESSINGS TO YOU BOTH.
