My girlfriend just broke up with me. She said she was tired of hurting me. I should mention she is battling depression and anxiety. I did everything I could for her. Stuck by her and supported her but she was convinced she was a burden to me; which she wasn't. I told her she wasn't all of the time. Now she dumped me and said she was tired of hurting me. I can't get through to her and she won't even give me a straight answer on why this is for the best. What do I do?

Being depressed doesn't mean she's totally out of her mind or anything. She knows what she's doing. You just have to as to talk to her either on the phone or in person as calmly as possible. Don't throw a bunch of words at her, or she'll feel overwhelmed. She's really fragile at the moment. I don't know what makes her think she's hurting you, but I want you to know that depressed people are NOT crazy. She knows what she wants and she knows what she's doing. You just have to CAREFULLY make her understand you. I used to have a mental disorder and I don't know how it feels to be on the other side of things so the only advice I could give you is to try to get to her REALLY CAREFULLY. Remember she's like a piece of glass right now; sharp but fragile.0
