Hi, I'm so glad this forum is here. I'm sorry to hear what you are going through, truly. I know myself all to well it is very tough when a loved one is suffering.
What to do?
I really think support.for you is first and foremost.
Maybe U have tried talking to your GP and get some free counseling, just to check where U are at with all of what you are going through. It's very taxing and draining. Maybe U have tried a mental health plan for yourself.
Just give you a bit of head space, get things off your chest a bit.
It sounds like it could be a challenge getting him to agree to speak to someone, for me, I had to put my foot down and say I couldn't take how the relationship was going.
I insisted on counseling, luckily for me He had been to counseling before, and didn't put any resistance up.
I'm sure you have already probably tried to broach the subject, getting him to see a GP would be a good start.
Have you tried phone counseling together.
He may need alot of encouragement as most men do not like to admit they have any issues especially concerning mental health.
Is there perhaps a mutual friend you both have in common he would listen to.
Anyway, apologies if this sounds obvious ...
My main point is you probably need to get support for yourself, to get some perspective, and that's probably why your here. Maybe you have exhausted all these options, self care is the main point.
Relationship counselling by urself first and maybe he will come eventually.
Hope you find some help, and better's merely a starting point, take care of you and see if he is willing to work on himself and the relationship
