Many are afraid to admit to their partners that they are experiencing chronic depression, and keep their secret, driving the problem deeper. British psychologists have conducted a study that shows that this fear is unfounded.

The good news is that in 63% of couples, the news that one of the partners had depression was received with understanding and sympathy. No, they didn't snort or say "you're psychic" and it didn't end the relationship.

However, depression puts a lot of pressure on relationships in a couple, so it would not be superfluous to give some advice:

Don't just wait for it to go away. Contact the experts.

Pass a general examination of the body. Depressive states are much more likely than commonly believed to be caused by a malfunction of the internal organs.

If you are clinically he althy, see a psychologist. Approach the choice of a specialist carefully. It's best if you get reviews of it from people you trust.

Take your prescribed medication and avoid alcohol, it makes depression worse.

Get some exercise. 20 minutes of jogging or similar activity a day increases endorphins and is recommended by most doctors for mild forms of depression.

Be together. The medications you will be taking may reduce your desire. This is not a reason to start avoiding each other. Maintain affection, even if only through kisses and hugs.

Keep chatting. Don't withdraw into yourself.
