Re: living with someone with depression

certainly being around someone who is depressed will make the other one depressed. i know cause when i'm depressed and down my sister feels it. when she is down i feel it. so definately i think it will also make you depressed.

the thing is to try to help each other. my sis and i try to like take dogs for walk, go out to eat. something when we are both down. then there are times when we just let it get to us and go our seperate ways.

getting help is great for both of you! i like talking with a counselor now as i can let her have it and not feel judged and she gives me advise. so i dont' feel totally alone in dealing with this crazy disease called depression.
