Re: Caring for boyfriend advice please help!!!!

First, let me tell you that depression DOES NOT cause someone to punch his girlfriend in the nose! He may be depressed, but he is also violent, abusive and manipulative. I think for your own safety and well-being, and that of your baby, you must remove yourself from him. Go back to your friends. He doesn't want a partner, he wants a nurse/servant. If this is what you want out of the relationship, that is one thing, but I think you deserve more. You are clearly a kind, moral person and I feel he is taking advantage of you. He is using his illness to give himself permission to be a cheating, abusive jerk. You cannot "make him worse", do not fall for that - it is just his way of cracking the whip. Life is too short to waste it on this sort of BS. Sera.
