Our expert says:
I understand a husband saying : "I wish you wouldn't spend time alone with this guy, it makes me feel bad" ; but not "You're Not Allowed to be with him". And it sounds as though your husband feels really insecure about your relationship and mariage.
Where there are distinct problems in life, antidepressants don't help at all, unless there is a clear and properly diagnosed Depression, and even then they only at best halp partially - they don't solve the problems. That's where counselling comes in. And there's a diference betwen feeling sad about something that IS sad, and being depressed.
Annoyed makes a good point, that to actually feel so sad about not seeing this one particular man, sounds like there was indeed more to this relationship than you admit.
And isn;t pat of the problem not that you used to meet with this man at all, but that you met together without others, without your husband knowing, and without inviting him to koin you sometimes ?
It was wise to have some counselling together, but it sounds as though that proces is FAR from complete, and needs to be continued, maybe even with a more experienced counsellor.
