29 Days to a Healthier Relationship
Work on yourself first
When you are feeling depressed, your partner feels the strain too. If you tend to isolate yourself when you’re feeling blue, it can take a serious toll on your relationship.
Antidepressants can help pull you out of a funk, but are less effective for mild depression than moderate or severe depression. They can also cause side effects like a decreased libido. If you notice a dip in your sex drive, discuss alternative medications with your doctor or seek non-drug treatments like talk therapy or exercise.
