clinical depression

‘My wife must regret spending her life with me. If she met someone different, she’d have perfectly healthy children,’ I told myself. ‘He is one of 34 people known to have this.’ My heart sank. ‘What? In the country?’ ‘No, in the world.’

“I remember thinking, ‘Maybe we just aren’t the best of parents.’ Little did I know my wife was secretly researching and had discovered a condition. One day, she showed me a video. My heart sunk. I felt dizzy. Straight away, I knew this was what our boy had.”

‘She didn’t pick up. I left a message telling her I needed to talk to her. The cops yelled we couldn’t be there.’: Mom loses battle with depression, dies by suicide

“One day she stopped talking. My friend had just been murdered so I was crying hysterically in my house. She couldn’t even comfort me. She didn’t have it in her. She had no energy to feel, to move or to talk. I kissed her goodbye and told her I loved her. That night, I started shaking uncontrollably and a horrible feeling overcame me all at once.”
