Pre-op depression?

Funny that I can diagnose him better than he can! I have no doubt that he's in pre-op depression right now. Ugh! Two more weeks of this? I wish he could be a little more like me. I've chosen to be positive about everything. And if I'm wrong, we'll deal with it when we have to. He's chosen the direct opposite path and is thinking nothing is worth anything.

How on earth does he expect me to stay positive? I am really trying hard today to overcome his depression and it's just not all that easy. He sighs all the time. Has this mopey look about himself. Doesn't even try to get my jokes. (Now, that hurts! LOLOL!!!)

I know it's just something that he has to go through....but I'm sorry to say that the rest of us have to go through it with him.

So today, I buried myself in my art! I've been hired by a local store to teach classes one night a week - something to force me out into the art world. They seem to be more than willing to work around my schedule with him, so I took them up on their offer to teach!

I've planned a pizza party tomorrow night with friends who have little girls that he adores. And my sis is coming down for the weekend with her husband. So I'm hoping this will force him out of his depression.

On the other hand - his birthday is next week.....yeah, I understand "that" depression! LOLOL!!!

I've made up my mind - it's going to be a great weekend! Hope yours is too!

Good for you, that you are trying to play up the positive! I think as spouses of emotionally up and down diabetics, we have to work extra hard at doing this. You have given me something to think about and strive for, as I have been very down with all of hubby's off the wall mood swings lately. Thank you. Don't forget to be good to yourself during this pre-surgery time.
