What a husband or wife does or says in relation to a depressed spouse can either exacerbate the symptoms or help relieve them.
To help prevent suicide, watch for: depression, bi-polar, suicidal thoughts, isolation, risky behavior, weapons, worsening health, giving away possessions.
I am speaking out my shame in chronic illness so that it can no longer chain me with its lies. ... shame has taken up in my thoughts, so that we can tear down its stronghold.

I have a secret. I hope you never feel like death is the only way out of your sadness. I hope you never experience the complete emptiness that is suicide and depression.
