WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED GOING ON 2 YEARS NOW, AND SINCE THEN HAVE HAD A FEW "EPISODES" THAT REQUIRE COUNSELING. THE PROBLEM IS HE DID NOT ATTEND HALF THE MEETINGS, AND WHEN HE DID WE NEVER REALLY RESOLVED THE ISSUE. HE IS ON 3 DIFFERENT KINDS OF MEDS, 1 FOR DEPRESSION, 1 SLEEP DEPREVATION AND ONE FOR ADD. HE HAS BEEN CALLING THE OFFICE AND ASKING FOR MEDS AND NOT GOING TO THE APPTS. LAST WEEK HE TRIED TO JUMP OFF THE BALCONY OVER A SQUABLE, WHICH I STILL CAN'T REMEMEBER WHAT STARTED IT. WE ARE IN OUR 40'S AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MAN SO MOODY AND TOUCHY. HE GOT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BALCONY (WE ARE ON THE 3RD FLOOR) AND JUMPED BACK OVER AND SAID "YOU DON'T LOVE ME." HE THINKS THEY PICK ON HIM AT WORK AND CAN'T SEEM TO SEE ANYONE'S VIEW BUT HIS OWN. THANKFULLY, HE HAS AN APPT., ON MONDAY, BUT HE WON'T TELL THEM ABOUT THE REAL ISSUE. HOW CAN I GET THIS WORKED OUT WITHOUT MAKING A MESS OF THINGS?

As I observed in your question, your husband may have an deep rooted anger and may be afraid of some external condition like people at his place of work this would make in depressed and afraid. He may be experiencing some mid life esipode which that he doesn't think that someone close to him doesn't love him as much as it been 2 years ago. The depression medication may make hime moody which is one of the side effects of anti-depressant His esipode of thinking or actually attempt to over the balcony is one the symptons of depression.
To deal with this depression of your husband is time and patience counseling if he does go and get to the bottom of it. But all this take time and show him you love him and care about his feeling even though you probably wouldn't understand fully of his deep feeling. May the Lord be with prayers to ease some burden from your husband.
