My boyfriend has always had bouts of depression, when he does he leaves the house and moves out back to his parents but this usually only lasts for a few days and comes back to normal. This time he moved out and left 5 weeks ago now and told me he needs to get seriously better because he's lost himself, he sees a counsellor once a week and he started taking tablets a couple of weeks ago. I've seen him twice in 5 weeks so I've had to cope being on my own in the house. I text him everyday wanting to help and try to understand it more so he doesn't have to leave to go to his parents each time, most days he will just go mad at me which makes me angry and we have an argument. He asks me to leave him alone and give him space but I just find it so hard and only text to see if he's doing ok. He now doesn't know whether he wants to be with me anymore all because I've cared and text him when he's asked me to give him space. Does anyone know what I can do? Shall I give him the space like he's asked? Do you think it's the depression talking? How can I help him? I have suffered with depression myself but only mild so I can't understand the severe side of it that he's feeling and I'm feeling very confused. All I want to do is help :-(.
