Depression is an awful disease that can infiltrate every single aspect of your life.
From sapping you of the energy for basic hygiene to corroding your ability to maintain a job or relationships, depression is an invisible illness that can wreak havoc on your life.
Supporting a partner struggling with depression can be complicated, since it's harder to pinpoint progress than a more physically visible disease. Figuring out boundaries while dating someone in the trenches of depression is its own project, and there's no one-size-fits-all answer for how to do it.
Unfortunately, bottling up complicated feelings until they spill out in hurtful ways isn't often a recipe for success.
AITA for telling my girlfriend that her having depression isn't an excuse to be a slob?
Recently my GF moved in with me a couple of months ago into my home due to her being on bad terms with her parents. Living with her has been a little bit of a struggle because she's a very messy person. She leaves her clothes everywhere on the floor and on the bed.
