: My husband is severly depressed and guilt- ridden. Several years ago he lost his job and can't seem to snap out of the guilt he feels. He was a professional, well known man in public life. He made several bad choices in his profession and was forced to resign his job. We live in a small town, and quiet naturally it was the "talk of the town" for a long time. Our entire family has stood behind him and hoped and prayed for his recovery, but HE can't move on. He feels so ashamed for letting the family down. Instead of facing up to his mistake and holding his head up, he finds these menial jobs to hide behind so he want have to "explain" his past conduct. We are in financial disaster because he is not making the money he once was. We have no medical insurance and he can't afford to see a psychiatrist for help. Does anyone know of an antidepressant which might help him snap back to reality so he will be able to face the world again? I had hoped that with the family support he would bounce back, but know I realize he can't do it without medication. Any suggestions?
