Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counsellor for Answers ASAP
I am so sorry to hear of this painful time for you. It does sound to me like his depression is at the forefront making it very hard for him to feel and behave in ways that are caring and mutual. I am hoping that with some love and empathy you can speak to him more and ask that he seek help again so that your baby can have two parents that are present and available. It is unclear to me at this point whether you will be able to find your way back to one another especially if he doesn't get help. I would go to him once again and ask that he return to his doctors to get into therapy and back on medication because he deserves to feel good and happy and excited for a child to come into the world. If he is resistant to any of that, I am not sure much will change from how things are now and you will be left with the decision at that point whether to stay in it or leave that aspect of the relationship and co-parent.
I await your thoughts.
I hear all of what you say and so yes, time now for you to focus on you and your sweet baby coming into the world. It is okay to do that now...you have focused a lot on helping him and if he refuses, then it can only be up to him. It is very sad so let yourself feel all that you feel and begin to get excited about your baby and all the joy that brings.

Yes, because even though you have every right to address it and ask that it stop, I don't think it will make a difference...he is in a state of focusing on himself and looking for any way to feel better and he believes this is it.
He may also be scared about the baby coming and this is his way of "acting out." Focus on you, your health and that of your baby.
I thank you for the positive rating and I am here again if you need. You can do this...I hear your strength.
