Three weeks ago my boyfriend of 4 years broke up with me very unexpectedly I am really not coping very well at all. Can you get depression with this?

Feeling very down is: Expected, you may be experiencing a very deep sense of loss - and grieving. Your lack of concentration & difficulty sleeping can go hand in hand with that.

You : You do sound like you are feeling unhappy. It is so hard to break up. Do you parents know that you cut yourself? If they don't know, please tell them. When a person cuts themself, it is usually a sign that things are not ok. Some people cut when they feel empty inside, or they might cut so that their physical pain distracts them from emotional pain. Cutting might ease tension or feel like you are letting bad stuff out. Regardless, of the reason, it means that you need some professional help. If you don't have a therapist, your parents need to help you find one. If you do have a therapist, make sure that he or she knows how you are feeling inside. If you have thoughts of killing yourself you need to let someone in responsibility; a parent, school counselor, teacher, etc.; know right away. This should not be ignored. You do need to talk with someoe. You can show your parents this response, it if well help with communication. Take care. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if my bipolar boyfriend has been going through depression and broke up with me i want him to come back?

If is very painful: To see someone you care about depressed. When a person is depressed they may isolate from others and their judgment may be clouded by their mood. Hopefully he is getting good psychiatric treatment. When his depression begins to clear he may re-assess his relationship with you. In the meantime, i would try not to push too hard. Take care. ...Read more
