I’m not going to go into the whole story unless someone has questions, but basically my bf got on meds Last October. He was hospitalized before but discharged into nothing so ha has not had any decent help until he met a great psychiatrist. Everything has been going great and for the first time in 4 years we had a happy, harmonious relationship, even moved in together, he was saying : “ I am happy “
3 months ago one of he friends had a psychotic crisis and he got involved into supporting and saving him. He also started working with his friend to help him finish the jobs that the guy couldn’t complete while he was in crisis.
Ever since then, everything went to hell. Bf’s meds aren’t working, his psychiatrist sees him weekly. He changed. He doesn’t want me to touch him. I can’t hold him or kiss him, only when he wants to out of the blue. I cried all morning today because I feel like he doesn’t want me around.
I m considering leaving for a week, because all of this hurts me too much and I have my own psychiatric difficulties - PTSD and high anxiety.
We both work full time and I am in graduate school. I can’t take the pressure of being rejected, even if it because of his psych problems.
I m just wondering if there is hope that he can get back on to something that works. I feel like it is hopeless. I stuck by him for 5 years and it has been 80% nightmare with shimmers of peace in between.
We love each other 100% but it seems like his mental illness is destroying every shred of hope we both had.
Thank you all who have been responding and helping me through this very tough time. a question and something I am pondering. No one mentioned the fact that there is quite a good chance that he is preparing to get himself ready to leave the marriage. If he means everything he says to me, and he believes it all in his head. Then he would also want out of this marriage. if I am a liar,...
