IamwhoIam Posted December 18, 2019 Share Posted December 18, 2019 Hello all, I've come across Ditch the Label a while back and I admire the support and help you provide to those who need it... Since I have no idea what to do now I decided to share and ask for help. My girlfriend who I live with suffers from depression and anxiety. She came off the pills (which helped her ease the pain) a while back because I make her happy and she thinks she doesn't need it anymore. As sweet as it sounds I don't agree with quitting cold turkey, just like that without speaking to her doctor. Anyway, she's off it now but it seems we are on an emotional rollercoaster.. one day it's fine, the other not so much. For over a week now she had pretty bad days, she didn't want to get out of the bed, she doesn't speak to me about it at all. I think that's what I found the hardest, the fact that she finds support only when speaking to her mum, but not me. Since I don't know what's going on in her head I can't help. I don't know what to do, or say.. do I act normal? But I struggle to act normal when I know how bad she feels.. I'm emotional and empathetic so I feel her pain and struggle. What would you recommend? If you suffer from depression and anxiety, what would you want from your partner to do? Or say? Thanks guys, in advance. Love you all â™¥ï¸� Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
