Re: Desperate for advice

Hi, I don't feel like the best person for advice but I know what it's like to feel alone sometimes when you are caring/supporting someone you love. My partner has anxiety and anger issues and is having/had a hard time recently. I had suggested to reach out to some supportive groups/charities to him ...

Any advice?!

Hi all, I’ve been in this forum for a week now and found it really helps me deal with supporting my partner. He is going through anxiety and anger issues, at the moment he seems to be holding back anger towards his family and especially his mum who was a single mum raising him and his sister. He doe...

Re: Need to rant

Hi Shattered15, It sounds like you are dealing with a lot at the moment and that you are a great support to your husband. My partner has anxiety too and I joined this forum to not feel alone in my situation. I can only imagine how hard it must be to have all that to worry about regarding therapy and...

Re: Partner has PTSD

I understand how you feel as that is me sometimes! I joined a few days ago for that exact reason that I feel overwhelmed and exhausted at times and I didn't know where to turn to. My partner has anxiety so I completely get feeling the way you do. My advice to you is to make sure you do have time for...

Re: Hi

Hi James, I think modin has given much more practical advice in his reply than I ever could. I just wanted to say that you're not alone with your feelings. My partner is a northerner too though been down south for a long time now! He too suffers from low self esteem now and then, especially with his...

Re: Hi everyone. Pandemic is hard, huh?

Hi Padmabell, Thanks for the reply, it’s nice to hear back from someone! Thank you for taking the time to answer. My partner has never been abusive towards me but I’m not going to lie is does get a bit too much sometimes if his anger has taken over. I know it’s 99% never about me and maybe 1% becaus...

Re: How can I help him?

Hi Loobylou, Wow you have really been through a lot supporting not one but two partners through mental illness. I hope you have time to look after yourself? As much as it's a hard time for your partner, make sure you have time for just you x Has your current partner received any support for his ment...

Re: Hi everyone. Pandemic is hard, huh?

Hi Padmabell, This is my first time on a support forum, I felt I just wanted to speak to people and see what support is out there for anyone supporting someone with mental health. My partner suffers from anxiety and anger issues and for me it gets very overwhelming and exhausting sometimes. I love h...

Re: Just feeling overwhelmed

Hi, Yes he does help me and does things around the house especially cooking dinner when I get home. He's not working currently due to work anxiety. He is aware it affects me too so he is doing good to support me. I think I was looking for someone who really does understand when it gets tough! I get ...
