So I started dating someone who I found out has suffered from depression. They are currently going through a really bad episode of it for the past 4-5 months. We have been dating 2 months and things are progressing well. I love the person and we get along very well. It's just that there are times where I'd see them and they'd be a complete mess. Drunk and upset because things are bothering them. One night it was so bad that their friends called me to come over to help them with the person and had to call for an ambulance to take them to the hospital for a mental health evaluation. They tend to get upset more and more lately and while the drinking has ceased. The depression is still there. I've only considered leaving the relationship the night of the ER because the person was refusing to get help for it. They do see a therapist and are medicated.
I just feel like I am treading rough waters here. One on hand the relationship is progressing, but on the hand the depression is taken a hit on the person and myself. I feel like the person's actions get too much that I'll have to end the relationship, but on the same token what if the relationship gets too serious and my feelings are compromised because of my emotions for the person and also how they are acting.
I in the past have suffered from depression as well and have successfully *lets hope for now* have conquered it and am doing quite well for myself, so I do understand a bit of what they are dealing with and going through in their mind. I just am looking for thoughts on this. So what do you all think?
