Looking for advice

Postby worriedhusband » Fri Nov 09, 2018 10:50 am

I am concerned for my wife. In her last job she was depressed and stressed. She had to find another job and took her last month off work for stress leave. Since starting her new job she enjoys it much more, is really driven and is working much longer hours out of choice and bringing her work home. Her social life has changed dramatically, she is going out a lot more and even sees friends during the week. She has also said that she is leaving me. The way she talks is that she has to make herself happy and can't rely on anyone else. To me she seems void of vulnerability and slightly emotionally detached. There are a lot of positives in the way she has changed but it seems like a dramatic change in a short space of time. I am worried there is something deeper going on with her mental health. Her dad showed what I think are similar symptoms and was diagnosed with bipolar a year ago. Am I right to be concerned?

I appreciate you are worried but posting the same question into multiple sub forums does not help people help you

Decide which one you want to leave open and close the others ones off - just out closed please see the same question here - and post the URL
Trying to help and be supportive to others on this forum is one of my attempts to reduce my own depression. Getting ourselves out of our own head circles is usually a good thing to do. Maybe try it yourself
