And yes, sometimes I need to be reminded that I may feel completely crazy, but he doesn't think that I am. Just the fact that you cared enough to ask should show him how serious you are about being there for him. I'm bipolar, but luckily currently mild on the scale.My relationship with my boyfriend was quite tricky at first - I started off well, had a down, started pushing him away and acting out etc.
It's just so difficult, because I'll be fine for a few days - even a couple of weeks, and I'll think I'm normal. But then out of nowhere it rears its ugly head and I'm forced to confront it.
Alcoholism and alcohol abuse are due to many interconnected factors, including genetics, how you were raised, your social environment, and your emotional health.
If someone you love has a drinking problem, you may be struggling with a number of painful emotions, including shame, fear, anger, and self-blame.
I'm not going anywhere though, and I need for him to understand that.
My dilemma; How do I be comforting and supportive without being too abrasive and scare him away? Was there a pivitol moment, or was it a gradual process?
