i am 25. having L5/S1 surgery on friday. engaged to be married october 24th. fiance is the type who could have a room full of flu patients all sneeze on him at same time and he would never get sick--ever!
i have suffered from chronic depression for probably 10 years, but diagnosed at 20, since been medicated and hospitalized in mental ward twice--just to give you background.
when i met fiance, depression lifted. the fact that he had never been to an ER til he met me and has now had to take me 4 or 5 times in two years-- has caused depression to return. i am so horribly depressed and feel guilty that he has to "care for me." and after this major surgery he will have to literally be like my home nurse for quite a while.
friends and family say he loves me, he won't care. he says same. i am afraid he will grow to resent me--his life was so carefree before.
any comments, similar stories or worries?
