Are they supportive? Do they understand you can't just snap out of it? Do they ever get tired of you being depressed?
My dh is very supportive and very understanding but I know that my depresssion takes a toll on him because it brings him down. He never treats me like I can just snap out of it but I do think he sometimes gets tired of me being depressed (but then so do I).
My husband does. He has also gotten really good at knowing the signs when I am about to "crash" as I call it and help me turn it around before it gets really bad. He feels bad that he can't just make me better.
My parents only understand depression now that my my brother, JJ, died in 2006 by suicide. They don't understand my mania though. They just think I'm fun to be around because I spend money I don't really have and get drunk with them. They don't understand that I need to kinda be treated like a kid again and told not to do what ever destructive behavior I'm doing (if you know what I mean).
My husband understands totally though. He knows I can be "normal" one minute and be a raving, yelling b!tch another. Then I feel bad and cry and he gets it. He doesn't have any mental health issues and I am surprised he understands as well as he does.
