Ep 2: Talking With My Husband About His Recent Diagnosis

Read Show Notes

Recently, my husband was diagnosed with depression. He'd been suffering for a while, without actually realizing he had all the symptoms that come with depression.

It wasn't until he literally couldn't take another step forward that he decided he needed to seek help, and his own journey with depression (and anxiety) began.

In episode 2 of Mental Health and Me, I chat with him about that realization, and how his life has changed since being diagnosed, and what advice he'd give to those in his shoes pre-diagnosis.
