Had to respond as I too am a pastor's wife or was until my husband stepped down from ministry because of MS. I too am a career woman with a demanding job, have two children and feel overwhelmed and depressed most of the time. I have been diagnosed manic and during the manic episodes I can accomplish a great deal which makes up for when I crash and do nothing. More recently, I am mostly overwhelmed so just go home and sleep. When my husband was in ministry, he always wanted me to attend Sunday night prayer meetings (3-4 hours) in addition to Sunday mornings, weekly women's study and was always encouraging me to be move involved. He felt my lack of interest was "spiritual rebellion". I am actually relieved that he is not in ministry anymore. The worst part is the total isolation that you feel. People say, "why are you depressed today?", like you know why you woke up that way and chose to. I was treated with Effexor for three years but did not feel better and had terribly side effects from withdrawal but from working in the medical field, I have heard that some have very positive results. My best of luck to you. I wish I could tell you I have found a solution, but I am just trying to get through each day.
