I've been trying to talk to my boyfriend about my depression, anxiety and family issues, but he doesn't respond. His mother had depression and anxiety untreated for about 10 years, and greatly affected him. He doesn't really believe in depression as a real disorder (he has the responce of "shouldn't someone just snap out of it"), and therefore gets annoyed with me sometimes, when I tell him I don't know why I don't feel naturally happy. The experience with his mother also made him bitter about family, and he'll make fun of my family sometimes. Granted, I make fun of my family too sometimes, but I love them, and he doesn't. I guess I just need some advice to show him that I am "not his mother". That I won't treat him like his mother did in her depression (because I'd seek treatment) and that my family is weird, but that there not bad people. Thanks in advance.
