Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Sometimes all you can do is look after yourself and trust that they get the treatment they need. You've done more than most people would in your position Lillie. Be proud of that.

I've had those sorts of thoughts too, Mr. B. Particularly after reading about anxiety disorders and relationship OCD as well as depression. Did I come of too strong? Did I push her too quickly and panic her? I know I also missed certain signs and things she said where if I'd havr known what I know n...

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

Oh Lillie I'm so sorry to hear that. But it's good that you can now deal with these little outbursts with strength. I think you are tight, the willingness to get better is key, and that's entirely down to them. If they dont seem treatment of some sort then nothing will change. I've recently come acr...

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

That's all great to hear Arwen. That's the path I've put myself on too. We will emerge from this much stronger people. Yes the intensity certainly seems a consistent feature. I remember thinking at the time "this seems almost too good to be true!" And we'd talk about how we must be meant t...

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

From your story mimosa I almost feel like in his own way he was trying not to get you. Same as my ex. I think initially she felt that pushing me away and not involving me with what she was going through was better for me. Maybe he feels the same. They cannot see that shutting us out hurts more.

Re: Depressed boyfriend has pushed me away

"Equally now, I keep thinking that it's the "darkness" that is so overwhelming to her that she simply can't find strength to deal with me on top of everything. My non-depressive friends keep telling me her behaviour is the sign she simply didn't love me and jumped at the first opportu...
