I wondering if anyone can help me, I will try to keep this short as I could honestly write about it for page!
My boyfriend of 5 years has depression and has being treated with prozac (fluoxetine) for around a year now. He wants to break up with me and says he needs to be by himself. Prozac has done many great things for him made him more outgoing and allowed him the confidence to make new friends but it seems to have completely stunted his emotions - especially romantically towards me. He has always had underlying depression and needed help for it and I'm so glad he's on antidepressants as he truly needs something. He has always refused therapy which I feel would really help him, but what can you do!! The last month or so has been absolute hell, I've had my own depression and other health issues that I've really needed support with that he has been unable to give, its like he has lost the ability to empathise at all. I'm absolutely devastated that my 5 year relationship may be ending - I KNOW the pills are numbing him, they make him completely selfish and he seeks out thrills to be happy, hes incompatible with every day life now and the only way he can be happy is doing extreme things like extreme sports for example. I'm so sad to be losing my relationship and wondering if anyone else had similar experiences.
