Are your partners supportive when you are in a rough spots? How do they do so? Or does it often lead to conflict?

Last time I talked about my preparations, I made him cry. We actually lost a close friend to suicide less than one year ago, and he sees shades of her in me. Hopefully it won't come to that.

4-6 years ago when I had a girlfriend and I mentioned something about CTB, she said she'd leave me, because she "doesn't want to bond with someone who will be dead and who will leave her alone here".

it kinda makes sense.

she ended up leaving me indeed, although apparently for other reasons.

He is very understanding. I've said that should assisted dying be legalized in my country I will go through with it. Even though he doesn't want me to, he supports my decision. I couldn't ask for a better partner.

He's never truly understood (which I get, he's never been in the headspace of chronic, major depression nor had the chronic health problems or life experiences Ive had, so how could he really understand?) and at times he's made attempts to 'try to understand' but never put too much effort into it. As the years have dragged on, he's become less and less understanding, increasingly burnt out dealing with me and all my mental and physical problems, and resentment has built. He really prefers not to hear about it anymore and I've become tired and apathetic in regards to talking to him about it, so I don't unless I'm really really REALLY upset and it spills out. Then it's like nothing happened and we don't talk about it. So in the end, I feel very alone. Ironically, him 'being here' physically but so distant and detached only makes me feel MORE alone.

Well, I recently told my ex that I was going to end my life. After a tough conversation, she told me "I'm busy, bye." The incredible thing is that she hasn't spoken to me again. If he were dead now she wouldn't know. She doesn't care at all.

I have only been at the recieving end, I wasn't suicidal when I was with my ex.
She sometimes told me the thoughts, sometimes even how she would do it if she was going to.
It is hard to hear those things from someone you love, but I always tried my best to hide those emotions and listen the best I could. And just simply be there.
Sometimes it could end in conflicts, it is a tough subject.
