Hi, for those of you who don't know my fiance of 9 years has been diagnosed with depression and on citalopram. He has some good bits in the day when he really tries but others very bad and anxious all the time especially in the morning.
He said today he wants to look at me and feel happy, to hug me and feel something and kiss me and get the tingle like before. I understand this as I want this back too and we have had snippets of this recently but only when he let's me in. He pushes me away so for him to get these feelings back he need to let me in and accept that in time they will come back but he has to try aswell as I do.
My question is for those who have been through this how did you get that spark back? How long did it take and what tips and advice would you recommend? Or those that have personally experienced these lack of feelings how did you help yourself? Did the depression cloud your judgement and not allow you to be happy and if so how did you combat the negative thoughts and try focus on the good thoughts? Please help I don't want to loose the man I love more than anything to this horrendous illness. Tia xx
