First of all, we would like to thank you for posting about your internal struggles with your own body and emotions. We can see how much strength you have.
Chronic pain can be quite difficult to live with, and your anger and frustration, unfortunately, ended up being taken out on your partner. We are saddened to hear that things have become so intense that he has apparently decided to leave.
Have you spoken with your GP about locating a chronic pain management program in your area?
We would encourage you to call Beyond Blue at 1300 22 4636, or Life Line at 13 1114, to talk with their mental health specialists in order to help you start working through your anger and pain so you might find a way to reduce taking it out on your partner.
Have you gently asked your partner if he would be willing to attend couples counselling with you?
Relationships Australia provides couples counselling. They can be contacted at
We would like to welcome you to our supportive and helpful community.
