Question for putih

Posted by Robyn on March 13, 2000, at 15:03:15

In reply to Re: Any advice on relationships during depression?, posted by putih on March 13, 2000, at 14:04:18

Thanks for responding.
I was curious to know if the situation with your boyfriend has gotten better over time. I am pretty sure I still want to be with my boyfriend but I'm very anxious about things getting back to normal.


> Hi Robyn,
> I'm the girlfriend of a man with depression. I recognize what you are describing. My boyfriend lost his "appetite" for sex, when he started with antidepressants. He also wanted to stay much on his own and was confused about his feelings, for me, and for all kind of things in general.
> The usual little anoyances in the relationship became too much for him to handle and started arguing about everything.
> I think you should be open with your boyfriend and tell him how you feel, the positive and negative things.
> Asks for his understanding and patients, if he is willing to.
> Don't feel guilty because he has been supportive, these are difficult times for both of you.
> Of course if you are sure you don't love him you should be fair about it. But don't break up because you are confused now.
> I think you need, like my boyfriend, a lot of time for your self, and that takes a lot of energy too.
> We still had both our own appartments so it was easy to keep some distance when needed. Don't know if this applies to you, its just what I've experienced.
> Take care Robyn!
> Putih
