Hey! So, I’ve been in a relationship with my partner for around a year and half now. It didn’t take either of us long to fall for each other, he told me he loved me after one month. Took me a bit later but I got there (I have trust issues due to past relationships). Anyway, we’ve been very open and honest about each other from the start. He told me about his BPD just a few weeks into the relationship. He has many friends and close family, but less than a handful actually know that he has BPD. We’ve been through so much together in such a short time, but lately, his low episodes are lasting a lot longer. He’s tried different medications but stopped medicating last September. They were making him sick and he felt worse because of the ED issues that comes with taking the medication. I’m trying so hard to get him to try again, but it’s like talking to a brick wall. We had an amazing Christmas together, but he hit a low at new year. And he’s been stuck in it since then. Usually if he’s having a hard time the episode will last 5-6 days at most. This has had been continuous for 3 weeks now. I feel like it’s starting to affect my mental health. I can’t sleep or eat with worrying about him all the time. I try to put on a smile and a brace face around him but he sees that I’m really struggling, and I think is making him worse. I pretend to be happy and joke with him to cheer him up, and he does a little then it goes way back down again. He’s not at any danger to himself or others, but I don’t know what else to do to help him. I’m really struggling right now, and I don’t know what to do. Usually I just plough on with it and he’s fine, we’re fine, but because it’s been a lot longer this time I’m so emotionally and physically exhausted. I have no idea what to do.
