Hi I am new to this so please forgive me it may get a bit lost. I am a friend/partner who is trying to help someone with chronic anxiety. He relys on me being there for him and it really is a lot harder than it sounds. My friend has addictions to alcohol and drugs which he is now withdrawaling from and it has created chronic anxiety which is testing me atm. I am trying to understand but like him it doesn't happen overnight. I'm still not sure if our relationship will continue a lot has happened and there is still a fair amount of anger from him towards my family which I struggle to accept. This anxiety is such a roller coaster and there seems to be a lot of blame from him to me, is this normal? He was in jail over Easter and now there is an IVO order to stop family violence, I am trying to help him but when u get constant strikes towards you and your family it's difficult to maintain that help. I have distant myself from him atm but he is now attacking me for not being there to help. Dambed if u do, dambed if u dnt. He has been ordered to attend counselling and other organizations, which he is trying but been shoved aside due to the history I think. He has started with the sessions but has severe attacks and breaks down in a mess, can't handle being in public places which is turning this anxiety into a rage or a blubbering mess. Thank you for listening.
