Thank you SO much for your very encouraging post!
I also think it’s a good thing but H is very down.
He had a big breakdown earlier and then wrote me a letter which is an easier way for him to communicate than talking when he is in this kind of a slump – it was very moving so read about his feelings and how “f****ed up” (his words) he feels.
I have already done a ton of reading – unfortunately he is not willing to.
The problem is that I have so much on my plate with work (practically full time) and taking care of everything around here that it’s hard to find the time (and patience…. I admit it) to carry on being supportive day in day out.
Sometimes I feel like screaming!!
I will keep checking in – writing and reading about others’ situations is really helpful
Thanks a lot
