I've suffered with depression for almost a decade now and it has ruined everything about my life. Any hobbies that I enjoy, I soon despise after finding reasons to hate them and no longer enjoy them. For one example, I was THRILLED to go to college a couple years ago, but shortly after I started hating it, secluded myself, stopped eating, and complained to my parents about how much I wanted to come back home. I stuck with it and graduated, but convinced myself it was the worst time of my life and have barely any memories of it now. Now, I would KILL to redo that time of my life and it pains me every day knowing that I gave up the greatest years of my life so easily to my depression.
Now, this is affecting my relationship. I made it 3 years without this happening. My boyfriend was everything to me and I cherished him so much because he took all the pain away. Now, I'm like convincing myself it's not working out after we moved in together earlier this year. Just like in college and everything else, I'm finding reasons to not want to be in this anymore. To be fair, he has done stuff that other girls probably would have left him for long ago, but I always forgave it because he made me happy. But now, all of that stuff is floating back up and I'm starting to resent him for it. Still, there are days when I fall in love with him all over again and couldn't imagine my life without him. I'm scared because I don't know if my depression is making me hate my relationship or if I'm actually just unhappy in my relationship. I've told him exactly that and he says he will never give up on me, which makes me feel terrible for even thinking like this because he's stuck with me through so, so, so much crap. I don't know what to do.
