Depression is making my relationship hard

Posted , 4 users are following.

I recently (2 weeks ago) started taking anti depressants. I was becoming very anxious about my relationship because it seemed like my feelings just kind of went away one day. My partner has done nothing wrong, she has been wonderful. I just feel so disconnected and I have a hard time because I feel like I am faking it. I keep questioning whether or not I ever loved her, which is crazy because I was so sure about it just a month ago! The anxiety is getting better, but will I ever feel close to her again? Has anyone had this happen before? I feel hopeless, I want to feel in love again!

      You feel like your faking it, and questioning whether you loved her but if you see what you've just said about not wanting to loose her? That answers it for you cause you do love her and your not faking it depression and anxiety make us feel this way sometimes don't think into it and give your medication time to work, I always questioned the love i had for my ex and I caused so many arguments with him over it because I was confused and now I've lost him but now I know I did love him but things happen for a reason I wouldn't go back now though just try not to think into it, you'll soon figure it all out take care x

    If you've only just started on the anti depressants then it will take a while for them to get into your body and be working properly, also the fact you've put a new substance into your body will mean that your own hormones and chemicals will take a while to settle.

    Take this as an opportunity to almost start again, go on dates, get to know her all over again, you'll find why you fell for her in the first place.

    I think the key to this will be, being as honest with her as you're trying to be with yourself

    Hope this helps xx
