Well he's right. I mean, maybe you should figure out your mental health issues instead of worrying about a relationship anyways.

to be honest, i would probably break up with you too. maybe not five minutes later, but he's not obligated to be with you just because you're depressed.

If you "think" your depressed, that means your not depressed and just looking for an excuse to act however you want with no consequence. That was likely his way of saying to get over yourself and stop treating the people you care about poorly.

Give the guy a break people.... People have relationships to be happy, not to be stuck to some depressed girl.... who now should be happy if shes found a guy she likes..

True clinical depression makes you shy away from people, become extremely sad/lethargic, have thoughts of self-worthlessness, etc. NOT flip out on other people. and depression isnt a disese, its not contagious.

Yea. My mom lied and said she was depressed when she lost her job and laid around the house all the time watching Oprah. You are not depressed - you just want to be.

#19... how do you figure that? you can come to the realization that you're depressed. does that also mean because you know you're depressed that you're really not? which would mean that the clinically diagnosed depression that millions of people have means that they're "just looking for an excuse to act however you want with no consequence"?

63, the way she stated it indicated she was actively looking for something other than herself to blame "flipping out" on. Her family happened to have a history of depression so she chose that despite it not matching up in the slightest. Depression doesn't make you angry. How does "I'm pissed off and have been taking it out on my BF, I must be extremely sad." make sense? It would have made sense if she said something like "Today, I told my boyfriend of nine months that d

She could be, instead, manic-depressive, but I also doubt OP's that. However I'm not going baw at her for saying she THINKS she MIGHT be depressed, because it's one thing to say "I AM" on a self-diagnosis, another to say "I COULD BE" (meaning, "I might want to go see someone about this"). That being said, though, OP you don't know anything about depression if you think "flipping shit" is a symptom of it. I agree that some people just use it as an exc

Perhaps, perhaps not. You're right, timing is everything; if he was going to do it before, he should have manned up and just done it. Now he just comes out like an ass.

I agree. It's also so typical for somebody to use something like "depression runs in my family", that's why I've been such a big bitch. Grow up already.

Hahhahaha same excuse for "yeah, im on my period so when i full out slap you or yell at you in public for you not getting the right flavor ice cream... you know why."

depression is fairly common in my family and i was diagnosed a few months ago, however i had been feeling this way for a couple of years and didnt understand why. i have SEVERE depression, and it really does impact on my life. it doesnt just "suck to have", i went from being an a* student to failing, i havent been able to read a book in over a year and i have completely withdrawn myself from society and my "normal" life. im in counselling and ive been on 40mgs of fluxotine a

Asking for a break from a bitchy girlfriend isn't "treating her like crap". Maybe she should treat HIM less like crap

no its not! its a serious problem. only emo kids (are they still around?? they were when I was younger) are "depressed" like that. for others its an actaully psychological problem that can be uncontrolable. But I would have broken up with you too OP. he was only your bf, and not for very long, and if your as young as you sound, thats a lot for a kid to deal with, sorry, but its the hard truth.

What the hell??? that is not accurate at all I have had severe depression for the past year and a half, and I can tell you I do not feel sorry for myself Depression is a medical condition, I and others like me dont have the right amount of certaing chemicals in our brains, and i can honestly tell you that when I, for example, get depressed, I dont feel sorry for myself. I just feel like nothing is good at all and that nothing will ever help, and no one can understand, which no one can unless t

#62 Don't be surprised when that line of thinking (the 'no one cares' part) comes back to bite you in your ass big time.

Actually, depression is caused by a decreased level of serotonin and noradrenaline in the brain. There are both environmental and genetic components of it as well, though

Right, because that's the role of a man, to put up with a womans shit. This is why I don't wanna be in relationship. Damn frikken whining women.

High five to ElMundio87. If he doesn't want to be with some whining, angry bitch, he's got no obligation.

That's often what people will do when you say such things. Is it even possible for depression to "run in the family"?? Some chemical/physical imbalance leading to that perhaps, but the way you said it...

Reply

Yes it is, but its still entirely possible (and not very difficult) to avoid taking it out on everyone around you.

Something else that it may be that can also run in families and is commonly misdiagnosed as depression is bipolar disorder.. I have a friend who was told he had depression for the longest time but no treatments would work for him, until he met a doctor who figured out it was bipolar disorder and now he says he feels better than ever! =) Just one of those littles things that maybe you can help someone else out by letting them know someday.

Maybe you're depressed because you finally realize you're stupid. "I'm mentally unstable and might be angry at you for no reason and then start crying about nothing. Do you want to devote our every waking minute to trying in vain to make me happy?" Most rational, self-respecting men would say "no" to that question. It's not because there's something "wrong" with them. It's because they don't want to put up with unnecessary crap. Why would they? Get help.
