My financee has been diagnosed with clinical depression. He used to binge drink in order to make himself feel better but he gave up the drink around 2 years ago. He continually looks at life as glass half empty - everything is rubbish, nothing is good in his life. Something good may happen which will be great for a week then its rubbish again. He is always looking for the next thing that will give him that something to make him feel a little bit of joy. He says he has never felt happy and never will. Even if he won the lottery tomorrow, it would be fine for a a day or two but then life will be rubbish again. Is there anything at all that will help to improve his mood? There are many others that have depression that find ways to cope and live lives that are okay but I am failing to find the solution. Any help that anyone has would be gratefully received. We are getting married in April and I want him to enjoy his day but he is already talking about leaving the reception early because he is not going to enjoy himself (because he can't have a drink). Help!!!
