Marriage over?

Hi there, some outside insight would be really helpful right now. Sorry if I waffle on.

I have been with my husband for 7 1/2 years, married for 5 in August.

I've had mental health issues for years, it's only 6 weeks ago that I finally got help. The medication is starting to work but I still need anger management, my husband has supported me through this but he's had depression himself but never got professional help.

We had an argument today, nothing major but he went to the gym to get his anger out. When he got back he said he doesn't know what he wants and has felt like this for the last 3/4 months, I had a gut feeling that he was feeling this way. I asked what I can do to help but he struggles to verbally express himself

I'm at a loss what to do... xx

Didn't want to read and run so going to throw out some suggestions. My first marriage ended indirectly due to my MH issues so have experience in this area.

Firstly both get some space. Sounds like for it to work you need to reconnect and not possible always living together.

Counselling? Going together ideally. Need someone to almost show that your MH issues are at least being addressed and he needs to do the same.

Will have a think and come back
