My wife has suffered from clinical depression since May of 2000. Thanks to medication, she went into remission until April of this year. This recent severe depressive episode was especially hard, and we had to admit to to the hospital. She was there for a total of ten days, followed by three weeks of partial hospitalization. Thankfully, she is in remission again.
Since the nature of this beast is repeat depressive episodes, I was wondering if you kind folks had any personal tips or knew of any resources (web, book or organizational) to help me deal with my wife's condition. On both occasions I basically just "winged" it, and, unfortunately, my responses to her behavior were not the most constructive to her recovery. When and if she has another episode, I would like to be more helpful.
