Nope.  Love does not cure depression.  Depression is a medical condition that requires therapy, medication, and/or lifestyle changes in order to see improvement.  Depression causes you to be unaware of the love you have and to discount the love you’re aware of as false or unimportant.

Love does not cure depression.

As someone who has accepted that I’ll never be able to deal with life in a ‘normal’ way, I have to say that this is what I feel most guilty for when in a relationship. The most terrible thing my illness does to me is not the crying fits, the illogical despair, or the inconsolable anxiety… it’s the fact that the person I love has to bear the weight of the knowledge that they can’t make me happy.
