If you feel that your partner is suffering from depression encourage them to see their doctor and ask them to be honest with them about what is going on with them. It took me years to finally verbalize my concerns and answer my doctors questions honestly. I was properly diagnosed and placed on the right medication. It's has made a big difference in my life. I wish you luck.
