How did you help support that person? Was it difficult at first?
Recently, a big job opportunity came my way and I took it. The salon opens in another week and don't want to screw up. In the past, I decided that once I felt the courage to start working again, I MUST begin my anti-depression/anxiety medication or else I'll end up self sabotaging.
Wednesday was the day it hit me; "now or never". The stuff made me severely ill in the past and holy shit, I am going through it now - today was better than yesterday, though. The side effects are really bad and I can't stop shitting and throwing up.
My guy is not being supportive at all and has taken it personally because I really need to take care of myself this week. I allowed him to come over yesterday because I cancelled going out Wednesday and Thursday, plus, it seemed like he wanted to help me but instead, he kept asking why I would take this stuff because I seem "fine" to him, but he was looking at me with disdain or maybe it was concern. Either way, it felt like shit. He also said,"well, I've been depressed before","but you've never been diagnosed or been on medication" "because I refused to" - OH, FUCK OFF. It was very tense at that point. I asked if he was judging me as being "weak" or "giving in" and he said "no, but you're judging me" - Fuck off, again. So, later that night he calls while I'm falling asleep saying he just wants to "see me". I'm about to have another diarrhea, I'm going through cold sweats - I couldn't. He says "You know what, I'm just going to go home" "what's wrong?" "I don't know. I just don't know."I texted right after and said "I don't want you to be mad at me. Please come over " "I'm not coming over" - I have not heard from him all since.
So, now what? I don't want to reach out. I didn't tell him about this so he could question my judgement- I told him because if he likes me and wants to be with me, it'd be nice for him to offer some support!

Fuck him! He's clearly uneducated about depression and shows no desire to learn. I have major depression too and no longer work because of it. I take 3 different psych meds and I've tried them all but none have done anything like that to me. You need to tell your Dr about these severe side effects1

It is usually a nightmare and it requires a lot of effort.1
