Really Struggling with Partner

Postby Normally#unbreakable » Mon Sep 22, 2014 7:36 pm

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I poked about on the internet for somewhere to turn to and it led me here.

I have a boyfriend of two years has just been diagnosed with depression and prescribed anti depressants which he insists aren't working. The depression has been ongoing since May and has been taking tablets since end of July.

I love him with all of my heart and don't doubt for one minute he doesn't love me....when he's not depressed. We don't live together we live in separate cities which makes things tough anyway. At the moment he's in a rut of going to work, sitting in his room and that's all. I've tried everything to try and get him to get involved in life again and now I'm just at a brick wall. I've not seen him since August we arrange to meet and he continually let's me down. I really don't know what to do next, how long do you give someone? how do you help them?

Any advice or words will help me right now, I'm truly at the end of my tether.
