Please can anyone who is reading this let me know how to support a spouse that has complex ptsd? He doesn't want to go to therapy. To me it looks like he is avoiding life & he has destructive coping mechanisms. He spends most of his time either watching tv or drinking in the bar (which in my country is not a safe place). According to him the time spent in the bar is the only way for him to socially integrate with society without getting too involved (both of us have interrelational triggers that makes it almost impossible to have healthy relationship s with other people). He supported me for years while I was learning to deal with my own complex ptsd (which was not a pretty picture), but I'm better now and I can see that he needs help, but I don't know what to do to help him. I don't want to lose him. I love him.
Hey, Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Lilly, and I am 29.. I also have Fibro among other health issues. Looking forward to having some people that I can relate too through this :)
I’m new on this group, but me and my boyfriend have been together for about a year and a half now and up until January, we were a great couple. Then, in January, I had a big turn in my life, I lost one of the people I was closest to and it was her and my boyfriend that were always there for me, and then a few weeks later, my boyfriend got a call from the marines and he decided to join. So after...
