cry  Where to begin. I've been in bed for four days, no energy and I have been in love with this woman for 6 years and we are only best friends. She knows I love her deeply but she has a busy schedule according to her and I know I'm special to her.
 My depression got bad enough to see a dr. that put me on Cymbalta now for two months but I don't feel much better. I can function right or eat right if and when I eat.
 Any feed back would be great. I can provide more about my situation later or just ask, thank you!

My first thought is whether you are chasing something that isnt there. You clearly want a relationship with her but does she want one with you? I appreciate that you say that she says you are special to her but that can mean as friends. I would need to hear more about the situation etc... to have a stab at working out what was going on.

Also, if you have been on the Cymbalta for 2 months and are not feeling any better, I would suggest going back to your doctor. Perhaps upping the dose or changing the med is needed. You really need to start looking after yourself becaus if you dont, then you wont be in a position to look after anyone else.

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

Darren is right,

You must take care of you in order to help anybody else. I think that people respect us more when we are into our own things. So if you want this relationship to go further, I would suggest doing things for yourself. Pick up some hobbies if you haven't already. Do things that would get her interested in you and what you have going on.

Best wishes for a wonderful day.
