We are currently going through a rough patch. We’ve been evicted, house hunting, packing, organising and finding the money for bills is really stressing me out. My partner has left his job due to health issues. I’m really struggling being the only one to do anything. He sits up late, wakes up late, spends a lot of days drinking and smoking pot. I have to make enquiries, book appointments (Dr, dentist, accountant, vet) I do EVERYTHING and I’m just so tired of being the only adult. All I think about is leaving him. How do I know it’s the relationship that’s dead and not just me feeling low because of everything else that’s going on? I am making myself so ill stressing over things, I’ve had to get medication to keep it under control, the first time ever I’ve needed it. I’m so scared I’ll make the wrong decision and maybe ruin a good (30+ years together and 2 kids) relationship but also scared that I’ll deteriorate more if I stay.
