My husband had a high paying job and at the start of the year, he was made redundant. Since that time he has struggled to find another job. He has many qualifications and it appears at times he may be too qualified. In any event, the last couple of months, he has been working at a company, not doing what he loves or wants to do, but merely earning money to cover our mortgage, bills, school fees etc. Anyway, this week, the company has announced it will be closing its doors as they have been going under for some time and are not able to make it work. My husband is spiralling into depression. We have a good, happy, solid marriage, but he feels he is failing in his role as the provider. I try to talk to him, but he gets angry or just shuts down the conversation quickly. I am so proud of him for all he has achieved and in no way blame him for the financial situation we are in. I just don’t know how to support him through this tough time. I admit, it’s hard to see light at the end of the tunnel.
