My boyfriend who has been feeling rather 'down' the last couple of weeks. This is coupled with crying, guilt, feeling worthless, confused, unmotivated, tired, etc. As someone who has bouts of bad anxiety and depression, I understand that he's going through a period of depression himself.
Over the last 6 months, I have kept pushing for my boyfriend to see his friends and family but he doesn't want to. When he does, he seems to brighten up a bit and feel thankful that he did but I feel bad for harassing him about it in the first place. We've been together and lived together quite a while now but I've never noticed any symptoms of his depression (although I know it was quite bad in the past before we met).
I digress, I wanted to know how many members were males suffering with depression and what (if anything) triggered your depression? Is there anything that makes you feel better or anything that helps you overcome it? Also, do you ever feel like you can talk to anyone about it? My boyfriend talks to me about it briefly but then shuts me out, just as I am in that metaphorical door by saying 'I'm just being stupid, sorry, ignore me.'
