Hi, I'm new here. I'm am 22 years old, almost 23. I was diagnosed with depression while in college, and was seeing a therapist. I have since not seen one because of my hectic life, and my transition out of college. I come from a verbally and emotionally abusive household, and am finally having to come to terms with how it has effected me as a person. I recently moved in with my boyfriend. As my condition continues to worsen, he likes to remind me that I need help, but now is threatening to break up with me because he "can't handle it." I need him to help me through this right now, not run out on me and leave me by myself to deal with it alone. How do I explain to him that loving someone in this situation means standing by them and making sure they make it out in one piece?
I am getting a doctor as of monday, because I can't put it off anymore. But what do I do!!!!!!
