i am very depressed, it's affecting my relationship with my boyfriend. he has considered breaking up with me because he's just not happy anymore. i feel worse and worse because i'm pushing him away with this depression. i had an eating disorder and i think that is the cause for the depression. i want to be happy again, and i want to stop fighting with my bf all the time and make him happy again. he is the love of my life but his patience is wearing thin. how can i make it better for the both of us?
Give him information on depression. Show him some helpful websites. My husband does not understand at all either b/c he has never experienced any sort of depression before. He says that since I have nothing to be depressed about that I am being ridiculous. I would say my depression has strained our relationship too. If they aren't wanting to make you happy and understand, then I don't know what else to do.
