Broke Up due to Depression - What's Really Going on??

So my girlfriend is currently suffering from depression. This is an affliction that she's suffered from in the past.
Today I get the dreaded "we need to talk" call. As expected, she said she needs space, her instincts are telling her that she needs to be alone etc. Bottom line, as much as she loves me (I believe that she does) she can't do a relationship right now.
To this I simply say that I love her, I want her to be well and happy and anything that will achieve that, I'll do. No drama, no arguing, just acceptance and support. All the while I'm thinking "I can't believe that I'm really never going to see the woman I firmly believe is the love of my life again".
Anyway, she then says she wants to scale things back, not be as intense, just have fun and be happy together. In my head I'm thinking "didn't we just break up?" but I just agreed that would be great. We've since hung out a bit, had a good time together, talked etc. and have plans to spend more time together on the weekend.
Can you guys help me understand what's going on here?
What is she really saying? Did she want to break up or did she just want to know how I'd react? Did the fact that I took it so well make her not feel pressured and thus happy to keep seeing each other?
Is this normal behaviour for a depressed person? I honestly don't even know if we are broken up or not.
I don't want to end up being "the friend" who helps her through all the crap and gets nothing in the end. I do love her and want her to be well however, but I'm not sure how I can best help her with that.
Thanks guys, help/advice much appreciated.

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
