It is not easy seeing a loved one struggle. Whether it is your friend or partner or parent or child, you want to be there for them, you want to support them, help them feel better. Caregivers are all too familiar with the helplessness, anger, fatigue, frustration and even the temptation to ask them to ‘get over it already’! Relationships often end up as collateral damage in the wake of depression. It doesn’t have to be that way though!
