I have a problem with my husband. He keeps on saying that he is very depressed and that we need to change things in our life, that he does not have enough activity and that he is feeling very lonely isolated, kind of a vegetable. We moved out to a foreing country 4 years ago where the culutre is very different from anglosaxon culture, people are cold and we do not really speak the local langugage. As I am very socialble and in 12 step programs, I am OK but he did not really manage to make friends here and we are now in the process of moving to a differnt place where we know the culture, speak the language and people are generally warm and friendly. But the move will take a while and he is REALLY draning me with his constant complaints and constantly telling me how depressed he is. I feel like I am fixing and doing everything and I am totally drained by his low moods. I organised that we join a nice international health club, listen to him all the time. He often gets angry with me as if it was my fault that he is feeling depressed or in a bad mood. What do you suggest I do?
