i haven't found a thread like this, forgive me if i haven't noticed it, but i'd like to hear your thoughts and experiences. how does your depression/anxiety/mental health affect your relationship with your significant other? how supportive are they on bad days, do you talk about it? i've always considered this to be something that needs to be discussed with someone you're that close with, because i feel like (at least in my case), my depression and anxiety shut me down sometimes and i can leave the wrong impression. what's your experience? how important is it for you that your significant other understands and supports you?
