I don’t normally do this but I am at my wits end
my partner (male) has suffered with anxiety for many years before I knew him and this in turn causes depression. He has smoked weed regularly for about 4 years (also before I met him) and he cut down greatly since he’s been with me and used it only for sleep but today is one month since he has quit. He is now super angry and struggling with sleep and has been abusing alcohol and prescription drugs. He knows all of this is wrong but all he wants is sleep and he also feels like he can’t be sober because he hates his life so much.
*before we met, he also used to go out every weekend and do party drugs and “nangs” and has now stopped all that completely
About 3 months ago I asked him if he wanted to move out with me because I had to move and had no where to go and he freaked out a little about it so I said don’t worry. Since then he has had this “sick” feeling towards me but it has been on and off. Lately he has said the sick feeling has been constant now and none of us know what this sick feeling is. He always is honest with me and he told me that he doesn’t want to leave me and we’re perfect together but he’s sick of this unknown feeling.
he has been to a psych who made him feel a lot better about the feeling but now he’s got It back again and also has seen his doc who gave him anti depressants about 2 months ago
i guess what I am asking is has anyone else experienced anything like this before? So far I have come across nobody who has experienced a partner having this “sick” feeling
and there are a lot of issues in here like th drugs abuse which I will also need some help With in who he can turn to for both issues
