Exclamation Help please!

Hey everyone- if anyone can help thatd be great.
I think my b/f is depressed, and I dont know what to do. It comes and goes, and I dont know if it from a particular reason everytime. Actually, i think it is. I think its his family.. he is 20 and lives at home with his family. He's said that its his brother and dad that bother him the most. He keeps saying that he wants to go away and "crawl in a hole" for a while, and that really bothers me. Ive asked him if hes suicidal, and he said "no, I could never do anything to hurt myself. I know it would hurt others too badly." And I believe him, beacuse he has told me about a buddy of his when he was younger that committed suicide. So what do I do? We keep getting in little tiffs when this comes around (depression), about spending time togehter (normally we watch movies).. and Im getting carried away about this.
Sorry for babbling on and on, I need a place to let it out. Every time I get out of the car I feel like screaming beacuse I dont know what to do.
Has anyone gone thru something similar to this? As I said earlier - any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: Help please!

Have you suggested he at least talk to his famliy doctor? He can start there, he does not have to go to a psychiatrist, I know a lot of people think it's something to be ashamed of & especially men. They are the hardest to seek help at first. Tell him to just talk to his family doc & see if maybe he can help.

Exclamation Re: Help please!

you know the only thing that can be done by you is to comfort him .. and be there for him.. if his family bothers him... he doesnt need you to do the same when it comes to the topic of depression.. just be there for him .. treat him like you would when he is not depressed.. just stick by his side.. maybe it is time for him to get out of his home situation.. and branch out on his own... just one night talk to him ... just sit down and talk no distractions.. after that night drop the subject for a while and if he brings it up ... then talk more about it.. i dont know if this can help you but its worth a try
