Im sorry yourself and your partner are going through this.
Your partner isn’t a F…. Head anxiety and depression are very hard to deal with… and they are very real….when your partner says these things about himself please ask him to look for the more positive things about himself .
I understand your frustration but I also understand what you partner is going through in some way, I also suffered with severe anxiety OCD it felt like I was living in an internal hell..I have now recovered thanks to the professional help I received. Your partner can recover aswell he just needs to find the correct treatment for him. My recovery was 3 steps forward and 2 steps back but in the end I got there….. I was lucky to have a loving encouraging family to help get me through in the tough times.
Im sorry your partners phycologist wasn’t a good fit he needs to keep trying new ones to find one that feels right for him…. A psychologist can give many helpful strategies for coping with anxiety…… please encourage him to see a new psychologist..
Anxiety can be managed…. My gp put me on a antidepressant to help me manage my anxiety… it’s not a quick fix though they can take up to 6 weeks to work fully.
I believe medication and therapy go hand in hand…. So please also encourage the therapy.
Life on the other side of these conditions can be amazing and people really do recover! Just hang in there with him and give him as much encouragement and support to keep seeing professionals.
Encourage your partner to keep phone contact with his family just talking to those close to us helps.
My advice is try to keep calm and be understanding…. We truly don’t really know how someone else is feeling … we can just be there for them in an understanding way ❤️ I can see how much you love him so keep showing him your LOVE..
Congratulations on your pregnancy aswell 😊
