Hi guys, I found this website online and never been apart of a forum so here goes...
I joined because I have struggled in the past with depression and anxiety on and off for 5 years since I was 16..
I have been to the doctors numerous times, been on anti-depressant, anti-anxiety tablets, tried herbal remedies,therapy,councilling etc.
At the moment I am the best I have ever been but still have the gloomy thought processes that gripped me into a never ending cycle for past 5 years.
I've recently got into a relationship with a guy who also has mental health issues. He seems to be a bit worse than me as he's been suicidal and tried to act upon it - luckily wasn't successful. He's recently been having his off days where he feels so down he cant leave bed and hes had trouble with his flat mate and not enough hours at his job.
I've tried my best to keep him up by taking him out and going on walks etc. He seems a bit better today but I just don't want him to go in a downward spiral that led him to do what he tried to do last year... It in fact terrifies me.
Anybody got any suggestions on how to cope in a new relationship where you both have some sort of mental health issues?
