Hi, I’m male in my late 20s. I currently have this issue where I can’t sleep properly due to thoughts. So I am tired all day. I used to cry once every 6 months on a major issue however now I’m breaking down every day or two. People around me are noticing me getting upset at things and they are asking me to find out what’s wrong.
Thing is I felt alone over a years ago, now it’s gone past a stage I am not in control of emotions. The world is a harsh place, I step outside and you get used and hurt. Stay inside and you feel empty and alone. My gf is confused when I tell her, bless her she doesn’t know what to say when she sees me cry. I was her pillar and rock, she must think what a pathetic man. She’s ended up going more with her friends, always available to listen to me but I can tell she is clueless jus as am I. I feel empty, she can’t distract me either. When out with my Other friends, they were being picked up by their gf or some going home to their gf, some making phone calls to their loved ones. I try to call mine and it’s jus a moan on how she has to work with specific person tomo, and how she has to get up, how work lot were treating her etc, so I listen and get off phone. So I go bed, wake up next morning to find her complaining her skin don’t look good, she don’t like this spot. It jus made me feel even more depressed and upset. Now she’s gone work I feel like what difference would it make if I was single, living in one room. She’s only one I got left, but I know I’m depressed but surely she should at least be a couple with me or am I jus a google for people’s provlems. I promise you if I asked for a recall on my convo no one remembers. This is what I’m fed up with and it’s stressing me out.

GO see your doctor.It’s NOT your GF job yo “cure” your depression, it’s your responsibility. YOU need to deal with it.If you can’t sleep at night and insomnia is keeping you up worrying about things, you REALLY need to get help for that.As for your GF. I think she is at a loss. She’s heard all your complains so many times and doesn’t know what to say or how to “help” you get out of your funk. Because SHE ISN’T a therapist, doctor or counselor.Her bemoaning the little TRIVIAL things in life like who she has to work with is her trying to share her life with you, the good, the bad and the boring. Your mood is rubbing OFF on her. Your conversations are mostly complaints and negativity because right now? THAT is what is going on.SEEK help ASAP. Wishing the depression to go away your your GF to to fix you, isn’t going to work. And start some exercise if you can fit it in. Doesn’t have to be over the top, just daily walks/run so you can get some sun, fresh air and your body going. It won’t cure your depression either but it will (hopefully) tire you out enough that you can get some sleep.Secondly, look at what you eat and make an effort to eat better.The whole we are what we eat, is to an extend right. So EAT good and your body will thank you. Stay away from alcohol, large amount of processed sugar and pot/weed/hashish.Get help ASAP
