Hi, if you're clinically depressed you can have dark thoughts and you struggle to function, you can become easily upset and loose your sense of humour. It's very different that just feeling down

My partner says I’m always unhappy. Iv had a lot of crap happen in my life especially growing up. Things don’t seem to be going right and on a few times iv had suicidal thoughts! Iv been feeling like this for some time now but I try and ignore it thinking it will go away. It’s starting to break my relationship but I don’t think my partner fully understands she just constantly shouting and having ago at me. Just don’t know what to do. I have know one to turn to.
