I'm currently in a relationship with a guy who has been diagnosed with severe depression. We have been dating for a year now. We text almost everyday but understandably, there are certain days when I text and do not get a response from him due to his mood swings. However, recently he has questioned me on why I do not text him further on those days. When I told him that it is because I do not get any response from him on those days, he said that I should continue texting him even when he doesn't reply. I don't quite see a point of constantly texting someone when there are no replies...but what would you do if you were in my position?

Unfortunately I was diagnosed with many mental health issues including severe -_-
Everyone copes with it differently and many have contrasting views on small things such as texting. If I were in his shoes, I'd adore the girl I love to continuously text me when I am down. It helps remind me that I have something good in this world and offers a route of distraction from all the negative thoughts spiralling in our minds.
Continuing to text him shows that you care about him and will be there for him, even when he is having a rough patch. Hopefully one day that depression fades away and you both can enjoy a happy life together.
I wish you both the best, message me if you ever need me.
