Causing pain during depression

I am dealing with depression. I am on medication and am going to counseling. I am doing much much better. How do I get my husband to understand that I didn't understand how much pain I was causing when depressed? I understood was causing pain but really didn't know how much pain I was causing?

Tell Him
I don't know. Maybe tell him that you are sorry. Telling your lover is a part of communication. I have a lot of secrets that I am uncovering. Things that make me a better person for even discovering about myself. Like I do want to eat well, and have a nicely decorated house. Etc. And that I do want a relationship with my boyfriend. Jesus really did help me out with this relationship as I would not be able to be with it if it weren't for Him. I just talk to my BF.
