First of all I want to welcome you to our forum. I am very glad that you found us,and very sorry that you did not get a response right away. But,there is alot of support here with alot of caring people.
Wow,I am very sorry you are going through this. Depression not only hurts the ones that it has taken over,but it also hurts the loved ones.
Men are more stubborn about
getting help. I don't know why it is,but they have been taught to be tough ect ect.
Now,since he is reaching out to you (talking about
hurting himself ect ect) then I think it is time to take a different approach. Is his family near you? Is there anyway you can talk to them,tell them what is going on (don't worry about
him getting upset with you,if he did end up hurting himself then his family will be upset on why you did not tell them what was going on) Tell his family or his best friend what is going on and tell them you need help.
If your b/f gets mad at you,you just simply say " I love you, and you are scaring me". What can he say to that?
Please keep us posted and stay strong!!!
