Does the Partner or Depression Cause the Breakup?

All along I have known she has depression. All that matters is that you try : But I hope and pray for the best for you! This was only a few days after she had been saying she loved me and missed me. Is that a horrible idea? I myself thought graduate school would be amazing for me; turns out, not so much. She's starting to get colder around me again. My ex boyfriend had started therapy but quit, and he was on medication which, unfortunately, did not take consistently hence the mood swings. I find it odd to that she has deleted many old photos of her but kept photos of me and her on her social model and continues to wear my gifts I got her. There are so many questions I don't have the answer to and I feel like I'm in limbo.

I gave her some space for a few days then messaged to say that I'm here for her if she needs me. We were talking about marriage and children. I am a 42 year old man that suffers with depression and sometimes heavy manic episodes inciting suicidemail attempts. I have nothing in my heart but love, and respect for her. I have started counseling as well to be better prepared to support her in the way she needs. I'd love a crumb of hope but it's so sad that her depression has destroyed the best relationship we've both ever had.

After that, I could never again rely on the idea that depression alone had done the harm. The thing is I recently got out of a long-term relationship with someone who had many mental problems not depression, but still mental problems that he did not deal with, and was too self-centred to realize the impact this had on our relationship.

We actually took a step back and I gave him time in the beginning. Hope can trick you into all sorts of hilariously unrealistic scenarios , and I feel like that is the last thing I need.

It sounded to her like I was blaming him, after all, rather than his depression. Yesterday, she sent me a picture of a little ornament I bought her and said it's got a new home on her desk at work. I think the main issue I am finding here is that I don't know how much time and space. Maybe just gentle things like cards or flowers might be appreciated until she is ready.
