My husband has never suffered from any depression or mental problems. In a couple years there has been horrible things happen one after another: We had a major move to a new city where our house made me sick beyond anything I could have imagined from fiberglass contamination-the old kind most likely containing asbestos, so my entire world is gone do to this it was very hard to watch me deteriorate (I had to live elsewhere for a long time),a miscarriage where we were alone and the fetus came out in my hand on the toilet, betrayal of a close friend, going from working in an office to working upstairs in the house-sometimes 12 hrs,trying to fix the problem in the house to exhaustion by using all our savings and a 17,000 loan from his 401K(we our now penniless and live paycheck to paycheck),we our losing our house because we our unable to pay the mortgage anymore, I have not been able to work so my business is almost nonexistent, then a very close and dear friend died of a heart attack out of the blue,we lost all our credit cards and both credit scores which we worked for for 11 years, I just had another miscarriage,and these are just some of the bigger things in less then 2 years.The worst is I did not know why he was changing in his basic personality and I was so sick I could;d help myself. Finally this past week he would not get out of bed, he would not speak barely to me, call his boss at all or parents which he always did. Then he would walk around our house in circles confused and crying off and on inconsolably. Finally he said he thought he had some kind of break down. His insurance was useless(they want money upfront to admit to a psych hospital) so he saw an emergency room doc who prescribed prozac 20 mgs. How long will this take before he can function he still feels gone and extremely depressed we cant feed our son and dogs and the electric will go off AGAIN if he doesn't work. Should he maybe start at 40mgs? i dont know what to do and I am very ill myself. J.
