Sometimes I feel like my boyfriend is making my symptoms worse instead of better. We have had several conversations about all of by diagnoses but for some reason or other; his behavior never really seems to change or adapt. I don't know, maybe it's because he doesn't understand how these illnesses really affect me. He's never had to deal with these things himself like at all. But at the same time, it is not my job to hold his hand and teach him everything. I need to focus on myself and on getting stable; not making him feel better. Maybe I'm being fickle and rude but I don't really feel like hearing him complain about his non-problems when he knows what I am going through right now. I am also tired of him hovering over me constantly, asking me if I'm okay constantly, locking my meds away from me, and just generally smothering me. I am starting to go nuts just being in my own house when he's home. Like if I go upstairs to be alone, please don't follow me. I don't know what else to do or how else to explain this stuff to him anymore. I really need a break.

I appreciate the support here so much. I'm learning a lot about myself and how to deal with my issues and emotions. And how to deal with others, that's the main thing. I'm glad the founder of this website went with their gut and started these groups. Fantastic support. Thank you all :)
