My girlfriend is depressed and it's depressing me. I don't know what to do?
Recently, this incredible woman that I've been dating has been really down in the dumps. She told me she was depressed and she doesn't know why. But I know there's a reason, she just won't tell me. She has been calling and texting me that she is crying and wants to harm herself. I've had to go to her apartment a few times to comfort her. I'm really worried. I love her so much and I don't want her to be like this. Seeing her crying and threatening her own life is making me depressed. And my son is getting older and I don't want him to see me depressed as I once was when he was an infant. I'm afraid that he'll be affected by it. I offered to take my girlfriend to therapy but she says that she doesn't need it and that this is just a phase. But I think it's much more than that. She won't tell me what's going on and it's worrying me. I really don't know what to do. I love her so much and I wouldn't want anything to happen to her. I really need some advice here.
