Partner causing my depression

Alyssa - posted on 10/10/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I fell in love with my partner now 3 years ago and we've been through so much together. We now have 2 children, he has been in Oregon now for 4 months for work and he has just gotten a house for us. He is in school full time and works so I know he's busy but he never calls or texts me at all days will go by without hearing anything from him and when I do call or text he's very irritated with me.. I can't even remember the last time he reminded me that he loves me. He doesn't ask how our babies are , nothing.... I feel like he doesn't care about us anymore. Also my cell phone recently broke and he told me he sent a new one through the mail, it's been weeks and I haven't gotten anything and when I ask for the tracking number he ignores me or says he will send it but never does. He also keeps making excuses not to come get us and bring us to Oregon with him.... it's just lie after, excuse after excuse. I have fallen out of love with him Im just so hurt by this. I was diagnosed with depression a few months ago, but now I feel so much more sad. It physically hurts to get out of bed and go through out my day pretending I don't feel dead inside. I love my children more than anything and I do my absolute best for them but this depression is taking over me I cry every chance I get to be alone. I need advice from mom's that have been in similar situations please :(

Sounds like you need to just let him go. Make sure you get a court order for custody of the kids... and then you focus on yourself and your kids and you just keep getting up and taking care of them day after day. If you've been diagnosed w/ depression... make sure you keep going to counseling.

It takes time to heal, but you will be OK.
