Hi all, at the minute I am struggling in my relationship with my partner. I love him dearly but at the minute I am really struggling in this relationship. I am going through alot of emotional stuff at the minute also. He himself is too going through alot too. So recently his dad got sick and is in hospital. He had a mini stroke. Ovously he is up in the hospital alot which is problem is he takes every thing to extreme and has been up in the hospital constantly, going to work then up in the hospital and not getting home until 10/11 at night every night....he is in recovery from alcohol/drug/gambling so I'm worried he is not looking after himself, also he has just dropped everything at home luckily we don't have kids. Suppose I'm feeling a bit annoyed too because I am not getting to see him much and I know our relationship suffers when we don't spend time together. He has siblings and they have kids and sometimes I think alot gets left to my partner because he doesn't have kids....very frustrating. Any advice on this...

Hi Shane

Maybe he's doing what I did when my mum was sick - I thought about all the time I didn't spend with her, and I wanted to make some of that up before it was too late?

I would cut him some slack, but I also see you have needs and expectations too of course.

Have you talked about how you're feeling with him at all ?
