I am just looking for some real life feedback. My SO has been dealing with ups and downs since highschool. I can relate, I’ve been there. He has recently told me that he is dealing with depression again, which is really hard on our relationship. He gets short and unmotivated to do anything (responsability, house chores, etc). He told me that he took anti-deperessants for 3 years, that they helped and that he wants to go see a doctor to get back on them because he has a chemical imbalance. Communication and talking isn’t his strong suite, so I was really glad he spoke about it (well I did bring up his attitude lately, but he DID talk). Him feeling depressed is no excuse to speak to me in a disrepectful way, although he always comes to his senses sooner or later (sometimes needs a little time to cool off) and appologizes. When I ask him how is doing, he just says ”okay…” and his tone is so… dead for lack of a better word. I am taking almost all of the responsibilty right now in regards to the planning, phone calls, e-mails… and looks like house chores too.
I really do undertsand, but would appreciate some feedback and personal stories… I know that this depression won’t be constant forever, that he will get good again, so I am being very patient and trying my best to be supportive.
