Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
No, I'm not there, he's stationed in Germany.. When he snapped, I mean by he said he was done with us, our relationship, when it doesn't relate to anything that's going on around him. I'm trying to understand him more by talking to his friends. From what I know, he hates the unit he's in and he hates his location and the lack of people right there for him is also hurting him. This is the second time he's tried to end our relationship, when I know that's not what he wants..
We've been together for a year and and 3 months, I'm usually there for him and I listen to what he says, and I try to understand what I can of it. I try telling him that, it isn't what he wants, and I've been telling him now, that he can't be putting our relationship in the middle of what's going on between him and the army. I don't think that's fair. I've tried explaining to him they're 2 different things. But he feels he take everything out on it because he has control over it and it's what he has left that he can control. But I don't think that's right. I help him in whatever ways I can, I talk to him and I try to make him feel better. I keep telling him he doesn't have that far off to go until he's out of the army and back home which is in 11 months. I tell him he's strong and he's so much better than that and how proud of him I am and he keeps pushing me away.. I don't know what else to do..
