I agree that depression and love are one of the hardest combinations there is. I have loved at a level that I believe very few people experience, i know some of you will probably say that we all have but i truly know this because of things that have happened in this relationship, it is hard to explain but it is a love that you can never do without!!!
I can really relate with loving someone so much that it hurts to just be awake. Everything around you is a reminder of what the two of you shared, music, places, smells or even the sound of a motorcycle going down the road. I am in the midst of experiencing this and i refuse to give in too losing what i have with this person, the relationship is complicated but there is still hope that getting healthy and fighting this depression every day will get back the person i miss so much.....ME! yes me and then everything else will fall into place.
This man was and still is my hero that you read about in books and see in movies. If there were ever a warrior to my depression it was this man. They say time heals and mends hearts but i disagree. When I am away from this man I think of him every day, four years later i still have butterflies when i hear his voice.
I guess the long and short of this is that I refuse to let depression or anything related to it destroy anymore of my life and if it means rebuilding, I would do anything. I truly believe that when God puts someone in your life as I feel he has with this man, although life is awful to bear it will be so worth it!
I guess I cant really give any advice. The only thing I do is hold on to my faith and be patient in rebuilding what we had. I pray every day!!!
