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.
It's been raining all night and morning here. Hubby and I have been in an ongoing argument since yesterday about pain. He claims that all pain is just pain and compared fibro to body building.... and body building hurts, asked, if they can "get used to it" why can't you? Boy, you should see the steam coming out of my ears. I told him body builders hurt the day after their workout, but the pain is...
