My boyfriend has very deep depression

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm with my  boyfriend for two years. whenver he feel down and numb he always wanted to talk to me and tell me that he can t live without me but now he disappeared for a week I missed him so much. I tried to contact him many times he read my messages and dont want reply or id  reply few words and very cold he said its very hard to describe what he is feeling and he doesnt have hope to live. he is taking antidepressant pill and he sees a therapist I think they put him on new medication. Im waiting for two more weeks. I wonder did he decide to just leave or he doesnt love me anymore? im so confuse what to do? how long i should wait and how long this medication may work

    I know my medication takes 4-6 weeks to work he knows you care for him very much but dealing with depression is extremely hard and sometimes we need some alone time just to escape from it all he may have decided to just take some time for himself it is important to do so when going through it I try and take as much time as I can but easier said than done sometimes with him not answering his phone well he could just be feeling that low he just may not want to talk I would just give him time then maybe contact him through a friend or family member if he is reading your mesaages then keep sending them dont out long winded texts just keep it simple (ie I miss you, hope your ok)

    Hi Jessica, It may be he is suffering clinical depression and he needs time to himself. Depression makes you want to cut off from people it's a way of coping. Give him time and space. Don't bombard him with texts asking where he is and putting pressure on him. Send short texts saying things like, how are you, i care and i am here if you need me. leave it at that. I know it' hard when you are concerned and care about him to not get response. Enquire through his family or friends.Hopefully he is getting treatment.

    Hi Jessica, 

    sorry to hear about your boyfriend , it's a way of healing , needs space, it's the same for me , my daughter wants me to work, but I'm suffering with depression too and you can't make yourself do things you don't want to do. All I want to do is hide , I don't ant to do anything , in time he will come round. Don't worry I know it's upsetting for you not knowing what he is thinking but we have to give time. I know I should work as we need the money but I can't work I have for a few weeks and felt extremely miserable I can't cope with situations and people at the moment. I am seeing a doctor today asking for more time off work, I wish I knew why I am acting this way but with patience and help I will get there . You will too. Take one day at a time .
