@Anamagana:  Yay!  Glad to hear you’re feeling better.  My Fiance battles with depression (runs in his family) and we try to go through a list of what he has to be happy about.  Then I ask him what he feels like is missing in his life and we try to figure out solutions, but he usually realizes that he isn’t missing anything.  Oh and I am WAY worse about talking things through when I’m PMSing, it’s like my brain doesn’t work right lol.  I think as long as you keep up your communication, you guys will be fine.  Best of luck to you and your man.

@Anamagana:  I totally feel you, my family is super oppressive and asian lol.  It’s taken a long time, and the death of my father, for my mom and I to finally be able to start communicating (we’re still not very good haha).

@Anamagana:  I read your other post. Although I havent dealt with depression with my SO, my ex bf developed severe depression after we split. I can’t even tell you how many times he would call me crying and saying he didn’t want to live and nobody understood him… which I can honestly say, I did not understand. Everything I suggested, he shot down. I didn’t know how I could help him. Now, this was also happening when I was starting my relationship with my now SO. So trying to help him with his depression while keeping my SO knowledgable about the situation took it’s toll on me. IT WAS EXHAUSTING. So I can definitely empathize with you there. As far as advice goes, maybe ask him if he would be willing to go to counseling for you. Explain that you think it would help you better understand his feelings. I truely think it would. And you can also learn how to better communicate when you’re feeling disscoected. Please feel free to PM me if you want to chat more and share experiences!
