Dating a person with depression
If you have had depression in the past or have family members who suffer from depression, you may also be at higher risk to suffer from depression.Some environmental factors can also contribute to depression. Someone who I dated and was depressed asked me why I broke up with them and although I didn't tell them at first, to try to protect them, eventually they wore me down and I was honest. I've had people tell me it's selfish, and it probably is, but I've dated depressed people and I couldn't take it. It drives me crazy and causes me insane amounts of pain to be around them, with their attitude about life and living bringing me down and making me think like them.
They told me I was selfish and stupid, that nobody is perfect and everyone makes sacrifices in a relationship.
Unfortunately, these medications take one to two months to reach their full effect and the waiting period can be frustrating for those who are suffering.
Medication regimens can change as a person tries to find the medication that works best for them.
We all have times when we may feel down or tired, and it is easy to think a person will eventually feel better or get over it.
Unfortunately, people dealing with depression cannot just move on.That if I really loved them, I would stay with them despite their condition, even if it caused me to feel terrible about myself.
