I have been with my boyfriend for almost 10 years now. He has always been supportive of me. He is good to me. And always encourages me to achieve a goal I set for myself. I always took responsibility for my mental health, and have always took meds. and saw a therapist if I needed too. I have numerous mental health disorders that I was able to control for the past years, however, since I am getting older, my TBI has gone from mild to moderate. I am also starting to have manic attacks, which again, I could handle it as the years have gone by, until now. My TBI has gone from mild to moderate. I am working part time and I volunteer with seniors and children in need. I never felt sorry for myself, and I have come a long way, however, I feel that my manic-panic attacks and symptoms of moderate brain damage is two steps back . I really feel bad about this, but, I can't help it, as I said before, I aways had a handle on this before, and now I don't. My boyfriend refuses to talk to me about my mental illness, and does not even acknowledge I have T.B.I. When I have tried to explain to him about how my TBI has gotten worse, he told me" he does not want to deal with this shit.'' I replied to him, how do you think I feel?? Outside of this problem, we are fine. He is not even trying to understand.I am hurting because my five disorders are getting worse, especially TBI. I alway prided myself on how well I could handle all of this, and still work 3 days a week, and have as close to a ''normal'' life as I can. This stress does not help with the annoying symptons of TBI,and the other disorders I have. I feel horrible as it is, and he does not mean to, but, he's making me feel worse. What can I do or say so that he will accept and understand my TBI? Thank you ahead of time for your advice.
