I am depressed, and I know it. I've got some sort of severe depression, and I've been off my meds for a long time...it just seems to be coming back now with the stress of college and everything. I can't focus, I can't really make myself feel at all motivated..it's really starting to wear me down immensely, and people are starting to notice I'm quieter and there are dark circles around my eyes from me not sleeping. It's been significantly harder to hide it from my boyfriend lately. I don't know how I can explain to him how I feel or anything like that....my feeling is that he'd somehow blame himself, or that it would jeopardize our relationship. But even when I've been with him lately, it hasn't helped my inner hurt like it usually does. I just feel like crying and curling into a little ball, even when he's got his arms around me. But I don't think he'd understand me if I explained that I'm severely depressed and nothing really helps me. I feel like he would push me away and I'm terrified for that. Does anyone have any suggestions?
