Thank you for this post. I am a wife helping a husband through, and so I immediately identify with other caregivers who have seen their spouses through such difficult times.


While my husband's symptoms differ from your wife's, he has some scary ones himself, and the ongoing suicidal thoughts for months and months on end have been extremely difficult for me to handle on an ongoing basis while keeping up with my work. I've let go of any of my own friendships or interests for now, as I'm sure you had to as well.


So thank you for posting your story. I can't read it to my husband right now as it scares him to hear how badly people suffer and he has hypochondria tendencies, so I especially can't read him symptoms he doesn't have or he'll start checking for them and reproduce them to some degree. But I will share with him the amazing healing that the two of you saw. I was in need of [...] today, and your story is a shining star in my night.


Thank you.

Your situation, as I well know, is very hard in it's own right. The suicidal thoughts these drugs cause appear to be all too common......and its extremely scary to witness their effects on a loved one. I can only say never forget it's the drug not the person. No matter how hard you're both finding this process recovery is there awaiting him.......and I [...] very soon.
The very best of luck to you both :)
