Counseling/dolor emocional


dear friend:
I am suffering a fourth episode of depression because I had a girlfriend and then I suspected she was pulling my leg. I quit her and abandon her. I am consulting a psychiatrist and taking 5 different medicines for my depression. I am seriously thinking about call her up and ask to be friend again in order to cure this enormous depression.
What do you think?


There are many people who are able to remain friends after they breakup in a relationship, and there are probably just as many that cannot. Since the feelings in a relationship are so strong, some people just can not go back to being friends.

Only you and your girlfriend will be able to decide that, but if you need to speak with her and clarify how you feel, that may be a good idea to help you move forward. Good luck.
