When you're feeling depressed what do you need and want from the loved ones around you to say and do that may be of help?

I thought I'd say I'm very fortunate to no longer suffer from depression.

Tell me they're there for me, they will support me, check in to see I'm safe.
If they are really concerned encourage me to see a doctor.
Sometimes I need someone who truly understands to take charge not tell me what to do but encourage me to get what ever help I may need.
Let me rest if that's what I want, dont try and expect me to socialise or expect anything from me at all.
I need to know you care

A nice cup of tea. That phase wore off after while though. No more tea:low:
