Depressed and happy that way

I hope you can
About three years ago I met a man who had a bad marriage and had
been on anti-depressants for 6 years.
In that time he is still up and down,
and every three to four months he
decides we should split.
But he always
comes back it is also a rollercoaster ride for myself as I
have no idea what
depressions is like.
I have asked him numerous times to seek help.
always says he dosnt know what he wants. He seems to want everything his way and
expects perfection in everything. He shows no empathy for anyone or anything.
months ago he decided not to take them anymore, it got to the stage where I couldn't
say or do anything right. He then went back on two half tablets twice a week.
Still he is edgy, I did not think this was a good thing to do, he is happy in
his job it's just his personal life.
He says he loves me, then he doesn't.
I stick around to see this through, I love him dearly but in the end I am feeling
torn on what to do.
You know by
now that he's not likely to change, and that's his choice. Some people become
dependent on 'victim status', others are simply firghtened of drugs.
way, there's no reason to end your friendship - but if you are thinking long term,
then plan with what you have, not a 'different person'.
In fact, if it's a different
person you want ... go get one.
