You’re not alone in this by a long shot. I sense you feeling fed up- same. Supporting my partner while writing a dissertation and no time for looking after myself properly like seeing friends, and no sex life at all cos of his meds and no promise that it’ll ever really change. Its been like this for most our relationship and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s ever going to be different. He’s on the mend, bit by bit, and I’m grateful for that, and of course I know I’m not going through it, I’m the support, but I feel you, this is fucking draining.
Sorry, I only ever seem to go on here to complain- which isn’t that often to be honest, any other time I’m way better at being supportive and patient and understanding. But just right now, it’s got on top of me, can’t sleep and over worked. I know how you feel when you say you feel like you’re just his carer. It sucks.
I know that’s not a very positive spin on things, but sometimes you just want to say the uncomfortable things- it’s a support forum, where else can you say it?
Let it out if you’ve got more- I feel a bit better just for grumbling. Hope you’re ok xx
