Re: Please help...depression? He's a different person

I think with him telling me it is over and he doesnt love me anymore that contacting his doctor or counsellor might be perceived as strange behaviour on my part? It is a shame, because I know I could help a lot. Its sad you have been made to feel this way, yet still part of you wishes to help in an...

Re: Please help...depression? He's a different person

Is counselling and recovery typically a long process in cases of severe depression? Knowing him, he has almost no self awareness. I feel it most likely that he will let the counsellor "patch him up" to the point he is stable again and will never actually identify what happened to him on a...

Re: Please help...depression? He's a different person

I suppose what I am looking for is some sort of assurance that depression could make him genuinely believe he doesn't love me, that it could make him believe our wonderful relationship was actually bad, that it could make him say and do all these things which are so out of character and make no sen...
