I believe there are many who can relate with me. A bout with any mental issue you may have can also effect those closest to you in the same way. For instance, every so often I still get very depressed. Never to the point where I would hurt myself or anyone else but pretty down. My wife picks up my vibe and I usually tell her its just a period I have to work through and that I'll pull through shortly. And I always do. However, people are who they are and my wife takes things personally and her mood dwindles with time. I therefore feel the weight of the two of us. It puts the onus on me causing guilt I don't need. I'm not saying anyone is to blame but that knowledge and understanding can go a long way.
