Hello, this is my very first post. I am caring for my husband who has been suffering from severe depression for over 4 years. He has attempted suicide 2 times now and has been down the selfharm route too although he has gone past that now. I am 30 and my husband is 32. We have 2 little girls 4 and 6 and although i love him deeply im not sure how much longer i can cope. He sits in his chair day in day out battling with his suicidal thoughts. He no longer takes care of himself or welcomes people into our home. We are under the mental health team constantly. We've tried hospitals, respite care, different medications, E C T and even considered seperating. I am always supportive and stand by him but he just doesnt want to be here any longer. He believes he needs to pass over and will take care of us from there. how i really dont know. It is really tough being a carer for a loved one. x
