I am a 25 year old woman and he is 28 years old.
We have been together for five years and are parents to a lovely two year old daughter that we both adore.
All issues receive a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.
I have depression and I know my medication is contributing to it.
I just want to know how we can be happy again, learn to fit in well and stay together.
