I am considering making an appointment with husband's psychiatrist for myself, but am having a hard time following thru with it. It makes me feel like a failure. So how many of you ended up on medications after a few years of dealing with a difficult child or difficult child of a spouse? I feel like I should be able to buck up and deal with life, but I am increasingly finding that hard to do. I spent all of last night in tears, I sometimes get so sick and tired of helping everyone else and no one helps me. I need a vacation, but am not at a point where I can take one.
