| | Depression Denial?
I am currently dating a guy who recently revealed he sees a therapist and takes Zoloft+Wellbrutrin. He claims its because he has anxiety about his job and workload. This has been going on for @ least four years, and the dr is currently weening him from meds.
The problem that I have is with him saying he's not depressed, but its only JOB STRESS.
He's nearing forty and not married/no kids, does not get out much, watches TV constantly, sleeps after work, stays up all night (watching TV), claims the meds do nothing for him, and he doesn't suffer from any side effects(insomnia is a side effect), and is a bit pessemistic. Not very happy about life.
Lately he's been working more days from home, @ least 2-3 days a week, which is putting him inside ALL the time.
I don't understand. If the JOB is causing so much stress, he doesn't like it, why continue to work there, for four + years?
I think he doesn't want to admit to depression.
Any advice from anyone? Aren't Zoloft, Wellbrutrin anti-depressants?
