I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, but I need help. My boyfriend broke down to me this morning. He cried in my arms and told me how upset he is: how he doesn't like himself and feels like he can't do anything right. He's constantly tired, anxious and has lost over 3 stone over the past year. I've always known that he wasn't happy in some way or another, but he showed me this morning just how much he hides it all. He told me that I was the only thing that makes him happy, so I never see the times where he is at his lowest as he always put on a happy facade. He also said that he finds it so hard to get help, although I'm not sure if he's ever actively tried to go out of his way to get it.
I really love him and want to help him, but I don't want to pressure him too much. It's evident that he doesn't want to feel the way he does but he doesn't seem to be too enthusiastic regarding getting help, as you would probably expect. I'm looking for ways that I could help to make him feel comfortable to go and see a doctor regarding his depression. I want to help him every step of the way. Thank you
