Dear Annie: I have been married to my darling for 15 years and these 10 years are different than the first 5 years. My wife suffers from depression for thyroid health reasons, but my problem is that she has stopped going to the doctor.
I ask her to go, but it always ends in an argument. She usually lets our kids do it.
I am at a loss. I still love her and will never leave her because I swore. she knows it — Beyond Wisdom
Dear Wit’s End: It is devastating to see your wife struggling with depression. You are living with every symptom and it affects the whole family. It’s your wife that they’re most worried about.
Untreated depression is a terrible way to live. She needs immediate help – not just from a thyroid doctor, but from a trained psychiatrist who specializes in depression and can put her on the right path to health. Tell her that it’s not only for your children and your marriage. Continue to support her, but don’t give up fighting to get her help.
Dear Annie: 30 years ago I met a man and fell in love. But he never asked me to marry him. He was 10 years older than me and had two small children. life went on. I had children of my own, now grown up and both still living at home. I take care of them and their dad.
After 30 years, I can’t help but feel that I still love someone I met a long time ago. We are in contact and he wants me to leave the family.
I have never been satisfied with my life, but I am always moving forward. I’m so worried about doing something for myself and this time I’m tempted but I don’t know what to do. Help me. — lost in the past
Dear lost child of the past: The rearview mirror is much smaller than the windshield. Move forward towards the life you desire. But your old flame has no right to ask you to leave the family. He sounds like a control freak who needs to stop meddling in your child’s relationship with their father. If he really wanted you to “run away with him”, you should have done so when you first met, and he should have asked you to marry him.
