My husband left me when I was 3 months pregnant with our second child. When I was 6 months pregnant, I found out that my husband was having an affair with someone who I had considered a good friend. I had been confiding in her during the separation. The night I found out about the affair I ended up in the hospital in preterm labor. They were able to stop it but they put me on an antidepressant, among other things. My baby is now 15 months old but I am still struggling with depression and having to depend on the antidepressants to function. I have been told by my ex in-laws that I am just not depending on God enough and if I just repent of being an un-submissive wife that I wouldn't need the medication any more. I feel like I am crazy. Is it wrong that my depression has lasted so long? Is this something that I should have moved on from by now?
