Pardon me, but I thought the whole premise of "Depression Fallout" was the title of Ms. Sheffield's previous book - "How you can survive when they're depressed"? In other words, it was aimed at partners who were coping with significant others who were depressed? So, when I started reading these posts, they seemed to be all about the depressed parties. I have empathy for my partner or I would not still be with him, trying to understand why he acts the way he does. I read the book because his depression is having a continued devastating effect on ME! I am reaching out for support for me!
