Thanks for writing in.
It is quite possible that he is suffering from depression
. However, before diagnosing , I would suggest that he gets his thyroid
function test, liver
function test, renal function test, Vit B12 levels done. If all these are normal,I feel it would be most appropriate for your husband to visit a psychologist
for the right guidance.
In the meantime , I would suggest that he also sign up for yoga
classes if you have a good yoga instructor in your area. Deep breathing excercises does wonders for the body.
Hope this helps.
Have a great day.
