Right ill try keep this as short as possible, I have been with my boyfriend nearly a year and everything was perfect until my boyfriend was digonosed with depression on newyears day after having a couple of very sudden anxiety attacks. He was put on Citalopram 20mg by the doctor and since then he has gotten 100000 times better in himself, he seems alot happier and the doctor is happy to soon reduce his dose to 10mg.
Everyone that knows him says that he seems his normal self again but there are a few things that me and him have been struggling with over the past few weeks,
He says the tablets make him feel emotionally numb, so he knows in his brain he loves me but he does not feel it.. they also have taken away his sex drive completely so I feel very unloved, i try not to take it personally but it is hard sometimes. The other day he said that maybe we need some time apart to help him, he then admitted that he knows he is pushing me away with how he is being towards me but says it is just the meds.
I have told him that we will get through it together, it is hard but i am so scared to have time apart and move out, because the way i see it, his meds make him feel no love for me, so if im not there surely he wont mind?
Anybody have any advice? pleaseee help :)
