A podcast listener, who is married to and raising a child
with a man with depression and other mental health conditions,
reached out to get some information and support
from others who understand the lonely realities of her situation.
Margaret describes the challenges of trying to run a house and family
with a partner whose depression makes him unavailable on several levels.
She speaks of the isolation, lack of support and understanding,
and how very differently friends and family react to mental illness than they did to her cancer battle years ago.
This 25-minute episode is an intimate and candid look into a marriage
in which depression can sometimes feel like a third partner.
