Our expert says:
OK, this does indeed sound like a Depression which should respond well to the right treatment. Your GP seems to have given you truly bizarre advice, based on a warped old-fashioned view of women as a subordinate species, and which should be disregarded. Rather arrange to be referred to see a competent psychiatric specialist, for a proper assessment and advice based on genuine expertise.
Men do NOT need special attention --- at least not any more special than the attention women need. What about his need to be a dutiful husband ? As you both work, he should be sharing in the chores. It IS about you, as well as them, and you MUST have som "me" time. You are not lazy --- your GP happens to have peculiar views about marriage, and has no right to try to impose them upon you. You are very far from useless, and deserve proper care --- your GP failed as a counsellor, far more than you have ever failed as a woman. PLEASE see someone with less neanderthal views about women, and get help for your depression. You could be feeling greatly better than this, for your own sake, as well as that of others.
