e been with my boyfriend for almost 4 years and for 2 of those years he has had depression and anxiety.
he has a very full on job, which he loves, but takes a lot of time and energy, leaving not much time for him to have a hobby outside of work or much time for us to spend together.
he has just started seeing a psychologist, which is great because I feel like he is making steps and trying to work things out.
We have a great relationship, however I’m starting to question if we will survive this process. I’m very emotional and need very open communication, where as he is quite shut off and doesn’t like to talk about his feelings.
I guess I’m just at a point where I’m not sure what to do to help him or to help myself cope. I don’t really feel like my friends understand everything entirely which makes it hard to talk to them about it.
i don’t really know who to talk to, I’m thinking of seeing a therapist but the cost is high and I’m not sure I can afford it.
if anyone has any advice, it would be muchly appreciated!
