Hi Lilliep, I do not know what type of help he is getting, he would not tell me, i asked him "what are you doing about it", he responded "i am doing something" that was it.
I asked him about his support network and he kinda laughed then he said his friends and i got thick and said "and what are they doing, taking you out and getting you drunk!" he said he talks to them.
He told me that he was on medication for 6months before, hated taking tablets. i am not sure what these were for though as he had health issues at that time, it may be completely unrelated.
He says still now his head and his heart are messed up. I told him to talk to me, i told him i can listen without judging and that we can talk and maybe just maybe i can help a little. He told me he did not want to bother me with his "crap" because i had enough on my plate (things are difficult with my ex-husband)
Yes his situation is a longer term one but i believe it was brought on by the unexpected passing of his best friend of adult sudden death a few years ago. The anniversary is coming soon and the week before the breakup message, him and his crew met up to decide how they were going to remember their friend this year and plan a memorial.
He spoke to me about it when we were together, and he got upset, he wanted to tell me about it but he was getting upset so he stopped. Later on that night he spoke about it though, when he found out about the passing and how and i could feel the pain he is in over this. he admitted that he never got over it.
