It's hard enough to deal with yourself when you're depressed, let alone someone else. This can make relationships extremely hard, for both people involved. These people get totally honest about their depression and how they feel in their relationships. You truly never know what someone else is going through.

It's an uphill battle.

I'm depressed and I'm bringing my boyfriend that I love very much down with me.. I don't know how to get out of this depression.

Sometimes you'd rather hide in your pain.

I told my boyfriend that I was fine, the truth is I’m not. I’ve been extremely depressed now more than I ever have been before .

Depression is the actual worst.

A supportive partner is so crucial.

My girlfriend says she can’t stand when I act like this. This is just me... sorry I get depressed.

Misery loves company?
