My boyfriend has anxiety and depression. I care for him and I want to help him.
I knew he had anxiety when we first dated, and I accepted that part of him, I didn’t care because I loved him for who he was. He would tell me how he felt, and I would try my best to help him through his anxiety.
He also has depression. It’s not as prominent as anxiety, but lately it’s been really affecting him. He’s been struggling on a subject and he does try really hard to study, but when he can’t do a question, he panics and stresses out even more. I always give him words of encouragement and make sure that he knows that he’s loved and care for, but that isn’t enough. I’m not sure how else to help him. Does anyone have any advice for me?
