Living with depression is difficult.
That goes for both the person with the mood disorder, and
those around them who are also affected.
Last week in “Caregivers Have Needs Too,”
Gwen, a professional, wife and mother, shared about the challenges of partnering, parenting and running a home
with a person who experiences debilitating depression.
This week, she shares the ground rules and clear boundaries that she and her husband have agreed upon
to keep life moving forward even during the times depression makes him unable to fully participate.
One key takeaway is the question: What CAN you do?
