After reading your comments, I think we all have come to a consensus that living with someone with a mental illness is difficult. It affects everyone around. It can be hard to watch and triggering. That must be very difficult to have someone else trigger your personal struggles day after day. How can you avoid that?
And there is a comment that touched on the fact that depression is an invisible disease. Everything looks fine on the outside, but on the inside you are struggling. I would agree with this. Most days I feel horrible, but people don't know that. I look fine.
My boyfriend and I just broke up and one of the reasons is living with mental illnesses. It is too difficult for both of us. But God knows we tried.
Thank you for sharing your stories with me.
