So I'm new to the site and really need support! I have clinical depression and take Cymbalta daily. I really could use some support and guidence as I navigate one of my toughest episodes to date...(been diagnosed since 1995, but suffered long before that).
 
I have two children, 2 and 10 months. I have a boyfriend of 4 years..no ring yet :-( but I am finding that my depression is effectin my relationship and I need to know if anyone has advice on how to deal with depression and relationships. He's never had a girlfriend that was so emotional....so I appreciate any advice smilewinkgrin

hi hopefulforlife.

yes depression and relationships is hard, been there,

but the s.o. at the time was not interested in seeking

support. sad really. it went pear shaped and ended very

quickly. maybe some couples counselling will aide you

both. check with your doc, he/she maybe able to

refer you to a competent and caring therapist. in the

meantime try to keep the dialogue going. with compassion,

jamie.

Don't ever give up on yourself. I think Jamie is right, couples counseling would help. Do you go to counseling? I would highly recommend it. You are dealing with a lot. Two youngsters. That is a lot to handle. No wonder you are having difficulties right now. Talk to a professional. Maybe your doc would be the place to start. You are reaching out and that is so important.

I hope that things get better for you. Continue posting, and know we are all here for you.
