Hi I used to come on here and fell away since my oh was doing really well. We’ve come to a point again where I realise how silly I have been and how I need to find myself some support. My husband has suffered since 15ish and copes well except every so often he has a breakdown and not so much with hallucinations etc but more with just coping with life.
We have our first baby who is 14 months old and my oh chose to stay at home and be a stay at home dad (mainly due to the fact that he struggles to hold down a job anyway). He has been coping amazingly. My little boy just adores him. he makes tea does washings cleans walks dogs etc… hes just great. I work shifts and need to be away 7 nights out of ten, usually one a week. this allows us to have a good wage coming in, i love my job also. got nice house, not over the top but comfortable, little family car etc… all very comfy.
He has my lb most of the time and occasionally my mum will take him for the day (not overnight yet). He seems to have hit a bad patch where he tells me hes going to a doc and psyc but I have doubts. Is serial lying common? he doesnt seem to be coping with little things and I have tried to get him to go away for a few days. My problem is I have no one to take wee one overnight and tonight hes really unsettled. I get a phone call and can hear him being a generally grumpy baby (as they do) but I cant cope with it. And I get annoyed at myself because I know that he is going to go through bad spells (wev been together 12 years) and should have seen it coming. I guess Im just looking for support and maybe some suggestions from anyone else in same situation??
