Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Hi everyone

Email sent Ariane. You don’t need to be hit on the head, I think we all harbour those thoughts about them making a miraculous recovery and coming back to us. Arrghhh so I’m being “orbited” that’s scary.

Take care

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Hi Ariane Oh my goodness what a horrible coincidence your new starter has the same name. I’ve found a different route to work to avoid Leon now. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t sleep well. You are being very brave though, I can’t bring myself to Whatsapp block him yet. Like you I did archive our chat, ...

Re: Husbands depression affecting our family

Hi In my experience if he won’t get help things won’t get better. I know antidepressants aren’t nice but they do help. My man wouldn’t get help, he said the tablets made his brain fuzzy, but he only took 2 and didn’t give them even a chance to help. He tried counselling but didn’t really engage with...

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Thanks Mr B and glad to hear you are feeling better and recovering. I just feel a bit empty and lonely, we used to talk, email and message so much, just this morning I saw something funny and wanted to send him a photo to make him smile, didn’t though. Stupid things make me sad, like I have to walk ...

Welcome to the forum. Feel free to rant here, we all do and there are plenty of people who understand and will listen.

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Hi Ariane You obviously loved that man very much and it’s only natural to find yourself thinking the ‘what ifs’ I’ve done it too. Like you I would have him back in a heartbeat if he asked me but it wouldn’t be the right thing to do. The person he is now would make me unhappy and there is no guarante...

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

So sorry Ariane xx. At least you have an answer now. He’s his own worst enemy clearly but you have done all you can for him. If he’s not willing to get help and try to change he will end up a lonely man. This is basically what I told my guy, I didn’t understand his message but unless he put his past...
