Re: Help if possible

Hi Rich, As a woman and for your sake be honest with her. It's crunch time and as you seem really aware of what is at stake just tell her the truth and try if you can to be open to going to get help. The first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem and you've already done that. So you need...

Re: Feeling isolated and abadoned; partner has depression

Hi Likestatic, What you're going through sounds so familiar. My partner has severe depression and at bad points is often unable to contribute or communicate.

My partner has depression and is on the way to getting help- though the way the NHS is, it's a long drawn out process.

Re: My girlfriend has depression

Hi my situstion is almost identical to yours, I've been with my boyfriend for nearly six years we have two little boys and even been engaged and also he asked me again a year ago.
