Everyone has their bad days; when they are sad for no apparent reason or just don’t want to get out of bed. But for someone with depression, these aren’t just days. These feelings and thoughts can go on for months and, for some, there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
If you have never experienced depression yourself, it can be difficult to understand what is going on in the head of someone who is living with it. It can be frustrating, confusing and trying, particularly if you are in a spousal relationship. Nevertheless, as hard as it is, the support you give to your loved one is irreplaceable and will mean the world to them, even if they may have trouble showing it.
In this blog from the Huffington Post, Hope Racine describes her experiences with her loved one with depression and discusses the time it took to really understand what they were going through.
