Living with someone who has chronic depression

Those of you who read dooce are aware of the psychological challenges she has faced over the years. [btw – if you are not reading dooce you should be]. Her husband, John, has his own blog – blurbomat – and he recently did a post regarding living with someone that has chronic depression.

As someone of the masculine gender, who has the fix-it gene, I have learned that the ability to shut up and listen applies to most relationships with someone of the feminine gender – chronically depressed or not. A difficult skill to master but one required for longevity in the marriage department.
