After living with a depressed partner for 3 years, I was at my wits' end about the lethargy, the crying, the emotional distancing. I bought about 10 books on living with a depressed loved one, and not only did I think that Anne Sheffield's book was the most helpful, but my partner also read it and he said that it was the most accurate description of what he saw me going through.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a depressed loved one in their lives.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book for my husband to better understand my problem with depression. After reading these great reviews, I was very hopeful that the book would help him understand and be more compassionate. But quite the contrary happened. It created a monster, my husband became very uncaring, insensitive and hateful. Only concerned with his fallout problem, and no long caring ennough to love me through my depression. After reading the book, my husband concluded that he is at no fault for the problems in our marriage, and because Anne Sheffield says that he doesn't have to "put up" with my depression, and that he is to "walk away" when we are having a discussion whenever he feels like it, it leaves the depressed person even more depressed. Since he has read this book it has totally devestated our marriage, and he has told me he is leaving me and wants a divorce. Because, Anne implies that many marriages wont withstand depression, he doesn't want to even try anymore. She did a good job of describing the depressed person. However, what I didn't like was that it was all one sided. The responses from the "fallout" victims, were just that, only from the "fallout" victims. What caused the depressed person to react the way they did. One guy on his wedding night was shut out. Did he possibly do something that caused that reaction from his wife. Did he say something or do something inexcusable that made her say "don't touch me". These things we'll never know. Obviously this book has been very helpful for the fallouts, but what effect has it had on the depressed? On me, it feels like it has literally ruined my life.

I've learnt so much about depression from this book. Coping strategies, what medications are available and how they work, and their side-effects, and most importantly that I'm not alone in this. This book has given me tremendous insight. In these pages, I discovered that my husband did not have unipolar depression, as we thought, but atypical depression, which is treated differently. It has given me hope, and inspired me to search for all the possible solutions. The book is also well-written and very easy to read, as opposed to many other books on the subject, some of which were so technical that it put me to sleep. Thank you, Anne Sheffield, for truly making a difference in my marriage.

I have been re-reading Anne's book:"How To Survive When They're Depressed",it is wonderful. I did not realize,belatedly till recently,that it is I that must change,not the depressives that I live with. Anne's book has given me renewed courage and faith and hope,along with inner strength in order to survive. It has been a long and hard journey for me. Anne deserves a vote of thanks,for trying to help those who suffer so much from depression fallout,that it can literally almost destroy the depression fallout victim.

This book leaves alot to be desired!! There is little or nothing to help sons or brothers of depressed sisters and mothers!! It's draining living with depressed dysfunctional family members,and this book,while interesting,gives short shift to sons and brothers of depressed mothers and sisters!! I have both Anne's books,I've been on her former Web Site,called mentally ill,I'm not-I live with this,I suffer from diabetes,learning disabled,back pain, I guess the title is misleading-oh,they'll survive,me? Not sure. Anne needs to do more research.

A couple years ago, my depressed boyfriend and I were having lots of trouble in our relationship. I was reading reviews for different books on the subject when I came across this one. I read a review by a woman who said this book helped her realize that her husband was still in there somewhere, hidden by the depression. I started crying right at my desk and I knew I had to get this book. This book helps you understand how your partner's depression affects you. I didn't realize how much damage it had done to my self-esteem to be around someone who suffered from depression. It just eats away at you and hurts you in ways that you wouldn't even think of. After reading this, it made sense why we were having so many problems and made our efforts to work on these problems much more fruitful. You have to know the ways their depression has affected you before you can start making it better. That relationship is over now but I am doing very well and I give credit to what I learned in this book.

Anne lays out in strightforward terms a plan for how to stand your ground and get the peace of mind for yourself and help for your loved one. She helps you shift the blame from "him/her" to the IT (depression). This book no doubt saved my sanity as a spouse of a depressed person as well as my marriage and quite possibly the life of my spouse. Unbelievable quality and honesty in her writing. I was able to apply the teachings the day a read them. Thank you Anne!!
