Okay, I'm going Anon only because thi is personal, no other reason. I posted once before about a boyfriend who has extreme anxiety.
Well, the panic attacks have gotten worse. Sometimes I'm up half the night trying to calm him down, and then I still have to work and be a mom all day. So I'm exhausted. Last night it was from two to four in the morning, then he was hard as hell to get off to work, still freaking out.
The thing is, I told him I couldn't live this way anymore, and that if he wanted us to be together, he had to get help. Starting with a regular doctor and a physical, just to rule out anything, and then probably a psychologist who can give meds and a therapist. I said the way things are is harming the family because we all walk on eggshells, and it's no way for kids to grow up.
So now he says he wants to be with me, no matter what.
He doesn't think he needs help, though. He says he'll talk to whatever doctor I want him to because he doesn't want to leave, but for no other reason than that. So I'm thinking, will it work if that's the only reason he's talking to a doctor? Isn't it pointless then, if he doesn't think there's a problem except I'm making demands on him that he doesn't like and if I would just stop, it would be okay? Should I make an appointment for him and see how it goes?
