My husband is stressing me out!!

2 years ago
He had a drill so he woke up at like 4:00 for some odd reason and decided he would scream really loud to wake me up, Gave me a heart attack. Then I go to wash the dishes so I can make caitlyn something for breakfast and he had put a rubber band on the spray hose thingy (I don't know what it's called) So I got sprayed. Then after he laughs for about an hour it was time for him to go and then he pretended like he was gonna kiss me and then he licked my face. He is constantly doing stupid and immature things like this ever since he started taking his depression meds and then when I ask him why or tell him to stop I always get the same stupid answers "Sorry for expressing myself" or "Did somebody forget to take their happy pill" Sarcasticly and it makes me wanna punch him. I love him, but I don't love his stupidness.He doesn't do it all the time but it's annoying when he does. I knew that being on something for depression would help but I didn't think that he would become that smiley and joyful and aggravating. Has anybody eles had this happen or know what to do about it?

Anti-depressants can have a serious impact on mood and behavior. If his behavior is out of control in any way he may need to try a different medication. You should also know that anti-depressants should not be taken for long periods of time. My husband's aunt was on various anti-depressants for over 15 years and after 4 suicide attempts she finally went through with it. They can change the chemistry of the brain and change a person forever.

The doctor told us that it would help him, but I this isn't what I thought. He went from normal to insane in like a day, I think he does need a different anti-depressant. I never thought I would say this, but I like the moody sam better then the one who acts more childish then my 1 year old.

my husband is on anti-depressions for anziety problems and yes, it turns them into 12 year old boys some times. i dont know why, but when he had to change meds i noticed a difference in his overall immaturity, so that's why i think it's the meds. my husband never does anything as immature as to wake me up screaming or spraying me with water, but he has his moments when i think our one year old has more self control. you need to have a serious conversation with him and explain that while you want him to enjoy life and be silly some times(everyone needs to be some times) you are not a 12 year old boy and you do not think this things are funny. laugh with him every once in a while and be a little childish, but make it known when something isnt funny. ask him, am i a 12 year old boy? if the answer is no, then the joke isnt funny to you.
