DH had his last day of work on Saturday. His demeanour is a complete 180! I’m so thankful for all of your prayers and support. I’m beyond relieved that he’s so much happier than he was a month ago, and he’s stopped taking his anti-depressants. I didn’t think such a simple (although drastic) change can help DH feel so much better. He’s back to his old happy self, making jokes, and bashing my Dallas Cowboys (I think I need a new team!).
This is the first time in DH’s adult life where he doesn’t have a job. I’m not pushing him into looking for work right away. I’m confident that he will be able to find something once he’s ready. I want him to be sure of what he wants to do first. But he has reached out to his network for potential leads. I hope he doesn’t get too comfortable not having a job!!
This experience has definitely strengthened our marriage, especially our communication. While DH has decided to not see a psychologist, I did make an appointment with a counsellor. I think she would be helpful in helping me deal with how I feel about our IF, and just talk things out.
Thank you again to everyone! I absolutely LOVE the community we have here.
