Hi I am new here. My boyfriend has bad depression. He just came home from work and is sleeping now. I feel worried for him. He is on paxil and his mom has been diagnosed with lung cancer. I am coming here for support and wondering if I can get any tips on how to take care of myself while still being loving and caring for him

Is he also getting counseling? maybe look into family counseling ...
Also, please know that he's going to have bad days possibly ahead of him due
to his mom having lung cancer, so maybe look into a cancer support
group, do a google search for one online and you might be able to find
a local group that way as well....and just tell him you hope his mom gets
better...and we hope that his mom gets better as well, many many well wishes
and come by and keep us posted....

Hi there,

I am so glad that you posted. I am sorry about your boyfriend having depression and his mom having breast cancer. I hope that it was caught early enough to be treated.

I know what he is going through is tough right now. Do be there for support. He has to work though this, but you can help him. I agree about getting the cancer support group. That really helps. Know we are here to support you too. And that will help you along. Family counseling is another good idea. I am happy that he has you. You sound like you truly care. You will be blessed.

Keep posting. Know that we all care about you.

Hugs, Karen
