It’s nearly impossible to deal with anyone who doesn’t take care of his/her mental health…just my experience.

I hope that he gets help for himself soon so that your journey can become more pleasant. Big hugs.
I have been riding his butt to get into therapy and REAL care- not just slap-dash scrip writing- for ages. He's got an appointment with a therapist next week; he implied yesterday he wasn't going to use it now that all his problems are solved (right). I asked him to please go anyway. But if someone isn't ready/willing to work with a therapist, odds are it's not going to help much, I know.

Grr. I have this sinking, irritated feeling in the pit of my stomach and I don't know how to make it go away. I'm glad I have to work tonight.
