Re: Understanding ptsd and anxiety

Hello If there are things you don't like, you can say, you can set boundaries. Obviously be calm and consistent, explain how these things make you feel, as much as what the 'rules' are. The illness is a bit separate from his personality and at the same time connected, learn about the condition as mu...

Re: Teen Son Won't Get Any Help

Hello, Fyi I am not a parent Technically he can't self diagnose, and if he properly understood the condition he would understand that it needs professional treatment. So there is a contradiction but he is only 15 so... If he does swing into periods of depression then the more stability you can give ...

Re: Depressed husband - I don't know where to go for help?

Hello sorry you are having a bad time, It is common for people to find it difficult when partners confide in others, in fact me being on here is something that my wife struggles with. But it can be very healthy, even just from the point of view of getting things written down. But flirty behaviour I ...

Re: Should I remain friends with my depressed/anxious ex?

It's a tough one, If you want to be more then just friends then I guess you have to tell him. But also understand that he has boundaries that you may have to learn how to accommodate. Hopefully with therapy he can learn to be more comfortable. But I suspect it will be slow. But ironically it may bro...

Re: Feeling Overwhelmed by Partner's Needs

Hello B well done for posting. I have similar problems with giving support, but came to it more slowly, try not to let the fact that you don't know how to deal with it make you feel bad. Deep breaths are great and try to relax back to your 'normal' self when you can. Your emotion reaction can become...
