    Yeah title pretty much says it all. Why does she get angry when I put on a brave face and try to ignore the depression? She demands I be honest with her. But when I tell her I am having a bad day or whatever she crys or says I am ignoring her.

    WTF? Cant win :(

    Yikes! :sigh: Can you address this issue with her and tell her what you just told us in this thread?

    Some people are programmed to weep copiously from childhood. The crying--it may just be something she does. Be as patient as you can and keep taking care of yourself.
