Get up and do it again. Been dealing with this for many years now.
Hubby's business is failing and he hardly works. His business has gotten us in serious debt and even if work starts coming his way we won't be able to get out of this debt. He is depressed and is getting really hard to live with. Grumpy, lazy, gambling and no self esteem. He also has health issues. How do I get help for him. He says he has asked his cardiologist and PCP about depression but they don't think he has it. It's been way over a year since he has seen either and doesn't want to spend money to Go. We have ins.
