Hey everyone, a few weeks ago, my girlfriend, now ex-girlfriend revealed to me that she suffers from clinical depression and anxiety and wants to put our relationship on hold for now. The reasons she put forth was that she was about to enter an episode and doesn't want it to affect my final year of highschool and she does not want to burden me. I completely respect this decision and made it clear that I will always be available whenever she wants to talk.
After this event we only talked occasionally, but then she has begun to completely ignore me. In the few messages and texts I send her way, she reads them yet does not reply. However, she is very active on social media and is constantly in contact with her close friends, and seems to be in a good mood around them. I know she isn't trying to hide the fact she has depression because all her close friends already know. So while she is actively socialising with her friends she is very cold towards me. We both work casual jobs at the same workplace and even when I see her in person she does not acknowledge me, unless it is something work related in which she will reply with one or two word answers. She doesn't even look in my direction.
This leads me to believe that it is specifically me she is ignoring and yet I don't know why. It has left me broken and I'm not sure what to think or what to believe. I have thoughts that run through my head that I may have done something and don't know what it is, or if she just wants to break up with me and see someone else without saying it straight up. These thoughts I admit are unhealthy and I brushed them off immediately.
I don't want to ask her about it because that would probably make things worse. I'm leaning towards the belief that she just doesn't want to burden me and feels guilty for ignoring me, but I can't help thinking negative thoughts on why she is doing this.
I'm just very confused, and I fear that she will never talk to me again, even if it's just as a friend. And I fear that our relationship will never be rekindled. I'm just looking for insight on why she might be doing this, and some advice on what I should do, and if she may one day come back.
