HI. I have been with my girlfriend for 18 years, and we have two children of 13 and 11. She has been deeply depressed for about
10 weeks, which may not sound like a long time, but seems like forever. ( Its not the first time either)She was having suicidal thoughts to start with but these seem to have gone away and now her moods are directed towards me. I have been tring to be supportive and take the presure off her. I have tried to get her to seek help but she refuses to see a doctor, I have been giving her space, I sleep in the spare room as she is having dificulty sleeping for more than a couple of hours, she is becoming more and more distant, I don't feel loved just despised. the whole family feels as if they are walking on egg shells and when I asked her Yesterday if we could just try and be friends she said" I don't want to be your friend, I don't even like you" I am at my wits end and do not know what to do. How do I stay strong and not get dragged down by her malaise?
