Hi! I'm new to this group and I'm really in need of some advice about my relationship woes right now... A little disclaimer, I have been in a couple really bad NOT healthy relationships in the past but I'm really hoping the one I'm in currently is... not as problematic.
I've known my boyfriend for four years now but we have only been together as a couple a little less than a year. We have lived together longer than our relationship. Just like our friendship we have had ups and downs in our relationship but it was never this bad between us until COVID 19 locked down jobs, schools and practically everything non essential. At first, I thought like him that even though these were uncertain times, I welcome what I thought would be a brief break to enjoy some family time. However, after the first couple of days of the "quarantine " I quickly saw that was not the case for him. When we were both working during the week, we had a routine. Now that the routine was broken with lack of work due to coronavirus, his new job became social butterfly. Every day there was a different excuse to leave with someone in his circle of friends. Since we lived together at that time, it was very difficult to understand why all of a sudden, at the most critical time, he had an aversion to being home with me for more than a few hours. He just said he couldn't stay in the house all day, it made him feel bad but it had nothing to do with me. We started arguing at first about how he would leave in the middle of the night at 1am and 2am to hang with friends and give them rides to places. We argued over him doing this several times and each time, he would threaten to move out, then eventually calm down and say he's sorry and it won't happen again. When he did finally seemingly stop that behavior, he still stayed gone all day every day. Then when he did come back home he was usually drunk and passing out sleep. I was only getting a couple hours of time with him in the morning and resented that after he reserved that time for his friends all day, he'd still basically be gone because he was incapacitated.
I was diagnosed with a PE at the end of April this year. I had my repeat CT last week which showed the blood clot is gone but, as such I have lung damage. Has anyone had this experience? I am waiting to hear from my specialist today if I need to be admitted to hospital for oxygen therapy. Or other treatments. Any experience of oxygen therapy anyone ?
