My boyfriend of nearly 3 years suffers from periods of mild depression. The first time this happened (that I was aware of) was about a year ago. He became really distant and stopped being interested in coming to see me or do anything with me which I found really upsetting. He eventually broke up with me and I was completely heartbroken as I didn’t understand what had happened. A couple of months after we broke up he told me that he’d been feeling really low and had spoken to his doctor who gave him some leaflets to read etc and he was starting to feel a bit better and wanted to give us another chance. That was about a year ago and despite a couple of bumps we’ve been pretty fine since. The other day he told me (rather out of the blue and via a text message) that he was struggling again. It’s been a couple of days since he told me this and despite me wanting/offering to go and see him he’s shut himself off a bit and doesn’t really want to talk about it. I don’t know what to do because I know what happened when he was like this last which naturally scares me and I don’t know how to help him when he’s shutting himself off like this!
