Depression is no different than the numerous other chronic conditions in that it can affect, in one way or another, relationships.
How does depression affect your relationships?
If you are a partner or a loved one of an individual with depression, how does his/her depression affect the relationship?

This is a great topic. I fear that my depression causes much stress on my relationship. I feel my depression causes me to feel less confident of myself, which in turn makes me feel insecure. I think this also comes with my other conditions, but I am certain that being depressed does not help.
My partner is pretty understanding, but I can imagine it is exhausting for him.

I have always struggled with sustaining healthy relationships. my depression takes me to dark places sometimes and it's really hard to let people into my life. I am not in a relationship right now and i don't know when i will find someone ... I hope to find someone who is caring and understanding someday.

I recently broke up with my girlfriend of 6 months, because she was lying to me and I’m sure she was seeing other people as well. I’ve been depressed ever since. Can’t sleep. Haven’t been hungry, lost 15+ lbs. I don’t want her back or anything like that, but I’m just constantly sad. Sometimes have what I think are panic attacks (rapid breathing. Fast heart beat) I’m tired of it.

@Hidden username relationships are hard and it is common to face hard times after you break up with a girlfriend or boyfriend. I hope you have gotten better. I know my brother recently went through depression after a break up. It was a few months ago now. He is much better mentally now. I hope you are doing better.
