Hi My boyfriend dumped me out of the blue in December, he has since admitted that it is because he could not cope with my depression – over the past year my illness has got worse and I also self-harm. Only a week before he left me I had confided in him how low I was feeling and that I felt I needed to get help…. how he thought breaking my heart would help I do not know!!
I have since tried to take my life and have reached an all-time low. I have moved back into my parents home (I am 26 and had been living with my ex-boyfriend for a year but we had been together for 8 years!!) and I am now getting professional help.
My ex knows all this and we are in contact every day – he says he wants to stay in contact and help me get better, he even came to see me last week and he looked a mess so clearly this has not been easy on him. I am hoping as I get better we might be able to work things out – am I mad? If I ever mention us getting back together he says it is too much too soon and that he doesn’t know what he wants… I just want him back.
If anyone has been through anything similar your story or advice would be appreciated….. thanks
