Saultyotter Posted November 28, 2017 Share Posted November 28, 2017 I have been with my gf for nearly 2 years and we were friends for many years before we got together. I didn’t know about her mental health problems when we were friends however she was very open with me from the start of our relationship that she suffered from anxiety and bulimia. She was attending counselling for them both and although it could be difficult at times we managed to make the relationship work. We both used to party and use recreational drugs quite frequently. Last year she started having seizures. Sometimes after she’d use drugs other times when she’d panic. The doctor diagnosed her with non epileptic attack disorder. I was adment that the drugs had to stop. She wasn’t happy about this as she’d always identified with being a ‘party girl’ but eventually she did. I do have my suspicions that she would still do them though and recently she told me that she did mdma on a night out. Nothing bad happened.. however a few weeks before this she told me how she felt mentally unstable and had a voice in her head telling her to starve herself. A week or so later she started making herself sick again.. Do I have a right to be angry that she has started taking drugs again? Unfortunately a lot of our social circle still like to party and use them. Am I wrong for trying to change her? I’ve told her previously that I’ll always help and support her but I really don’t think class a drugs will do anything but negatively impact her conditions. She’s been to the doctors about feeling low again but states she’s no where near as bad as previously but felt it was a waste of time. Her erratic behaviour has put immense strain on our relationship and we’ve been arguing a lot recently. I just don’t know what to do. I’m in my 30s now and just wants be in a healthy stable relationship. There are no kids involved and we don’t live together but I guess this would be the next step for us and I feel like we’re a million miles away from it. I just don’t know what to do. If I walk away will it be mistake? She has her faults but she’s also a great girlfriend whom I love very much. Link to comment
