Just stumbled across a german book, it’s called “Schattendasein: Das unverstandenes Leiden Depression” - unfortunately, found it only in german. Its title may tranlsate to something like “Shadowy Existence: A misunderstood disease called Depression.”. I’m not affiliated with the authors, nor do I get any comissions for talking you guys into buying a german book.
Found this book while looking for some reading about my current state of depression and how it affects my spouse. Not sure how long our marriage will last - that ship took enough hits it should have been sunken long ago. I like the perspective the book gives me about how my spouse is affected by that shitty illness.
Two questions for my fellow in-dev-mates:
a) How do your spouses/relatives cope with your flavor of mental illness?
b) How do you guys cope with their coping?
Thanks, stay safe & take care!!
