Going to a therapist is about as weak as going to a doctor. When you have a broken leg, do you say, "I don't want to seem weak." NO, you go and get it healed. You're broken right now, you're having a lot of difficulties with relationships while battling depression. You are being strong and sensible to go to a therapist... why are you writing into a love advice web site? Because you want some help coping with a very difficult situation. Going to therapy is the exact same thing, but you get an hour's worth of attention from a professional. Much better for your situation.

Good luck!
