Help :/

I need some people's advice. I've just restarted fluoxetine 20mg a day after a 5 week break trying to get off it but failing. Anyway, my boyfriend of 8 months dad died last year from cancer when we'd only been together 3 months. He had cancer and was quite sudden. They didn't get along real well. He said it hasn't hit him yet his dad is gone. Could he be depressed? Cuz he's moody and weird sometimes

  • Hello. How sad for you both. I know they didn't get on well but he was his dad and that will hit home at some point.

    It's hard to say about depression. Grief is a personal journey, everyone is different. My dad died 4 years ago from alcoholism and I still don't feel I've grieved for him. Or I ever will.

    The best thing is being supportive, letting him talk if he needs to.

    You'll get much better replies about the grief than mine, just wanted to say everyone is different. I still struggle now.

    Best wishes 💗

  • Thank you for replying. I'm not sure when he will but I don't think it will be anytime soon..

  • Would he consider bereavement counselling?

    But I do think anti-depressants can help after a month or so.
