I need to know how to cope with a close family member who is suffering from depression. Recently he moods have been so erratic. She has recently been weened off of one anti-deression med for another and I don't know if that is the cause or what? I am feeling anxious everytime she calls me and I don't want to take for fear that she will say something hurtful or fear that I may something that I might regret. I mean it seems like I can't say anything to her without her snapping at me for "how I said something" or "my tone whe I am talking to her" or "implying something" I can't win no matter what I say to her , whether I am trying to make her feel better by saying some kind words, which I try to do alot , it doesn't matter what I do or say . I am just frustrated . I know she is going through a rough time as well , but it is getting harder to cope . I don't know what to do anymore.
