Kate221 Posted July 3, 2017 Share Posted July 3, 2017 Hi everyone, Last year I was severely depressed due to various different issues. It took a while for me to get back on my feet and start to live my life again. Just before the beginning of this year I met a new partner and we got along great, enjoyed some really nice times together. About a month or so ago I felt as though my depression was returning. I confided in a few family members and friends but decided not to burden him, especially so soon into a new relationship. Anyway, I ended up getting really low again and eventually I told him about my past. Due to my low mood and suffering from anxiety attacks we had been arguing more frequently. These arguments were about small things and were always over fairly quickly. Once I had told him about my past he seemed supportive but then a few days later he decided to end our relationship. He claimed that we had been arguing too much and although he enjoyed the times we had together he felt the arguments overshadowed these. We had a holiday booked and this has come quit out of the blue to me. Yes we did argue a bit more frequently lately but I had explained that this was due to the other issues I had going on. He keeps talking to me about needing space and not being able to see how our relationship can be the same again? I feel as though I've 'scared him off' by finally being honest about my depression. Its an awful feeling to know that this has been the cause of my relationship ending. I've ended up becoming even more depressed which was something I was trying to avoid. Have I done the wrong thing by being honest? Is there anything I can do to save this relationship? Any (kind) advice would be greatly appreciated. Kate Link to comment
