My now ex girlfriend has been battling depression for several months and I stayed by her side through it all. But just recently broke it off with me because she didn't want me involved in this anymore because she thinks sh's hurting me.
This is her text: "I care a lot about u and I miss u. Im done hurting u and I don't want to hurt u anymore. Were done"
Now she's not texting me back? Why?

It's hard to deal with someone who is 'Battling depression,' nickk, and unless you were prepared to be her Enabler, her life line, her life long support hose, there is no telling how long this could go on. She may or may not be on meds, which is desperately needed in a delicate depressed condition like this and even on This, there are moments when the drugs aren't helping, they need to be changed, and then there are those who no matter what they take... nothing seems to work.
My sister, who battles anxiety and depression, has had this for years, has a close friend who is in worse shape. Her husband just left her awhile ago and two weeks ago she was forced to move in with her sister. And with something as tragic as someone who you believed would always stay by your side, her life will most likely go down in the trash tubes forever now...
Leave her alone for now. When she writes you all of this, she doesn't want you to see her like this, be involved in her life when she is having so many problems dealing with it herself. The best thing you can do for her right now is respect her wishes... she loves you enough to want the best for you, not have to spend your days nursing her back to what may never be health again.
It takes a special person to deal with a depressed loved one who is this bad off. Of course, many loved ones do stay and put up with it but it isn't easy... this may not have been in the cards for you to hold in your life... or at least right now... it's a tough nut job...
Good luck. xx0
