My partner has recently been diagnosed with a personality disorder. I recently left my job to care for him full time, and if I’m honestly I’m struggling I feel like I’m on a moving rollercoaster that’s either up or down there’s no levelling out, I always knew this wouldn’t be easy. Since having children I’ve lost touch with the majority of my friends, I feel isolated and lonely, I have tried talking to my family but they aren’t understanding. I would like to speak with other people going through the same situation who I can relate to.
I’m sure others more experienced will respond soon. I wondered if you might be able to work or volunteer part time to get out of the house. It is very isolating and frustrating being at home all the time.
How old are you and your kids?
