Hi, i'm new here.
Background: my partner has lived with anxiety for 10years which has increased significantly in the last 3years following a bicycle accident. Since the accident he also has PTSD and a bit of depression.
In the last year he has struggled. He doesn't feel like he has a medication that is working. He had a psychiatrist but that was short term care and has ended. He has been self medicating and drinking (some weeks worse than others). He had 3 weeks in a clinic but since then has felt pressure from work and seems to be back to drinking too much. This week he got caught drink driving.
I'm getting frustrated with him, he tries to treat himself rather than ask for professional help. He doesn't realise how his behaviour is affecting not just me and his children but people in his work place. I want to help, I try to help but it seems to have little affect.
