    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    I've been really down the past couple of days with zero motivation but I've still managed to do my tutorial work for uni and go to lectures, and I also made 2 'grown-up' phone calls today without getting worked up over it and I'm starting to feel better again.

    *sigh*
    Living with a partner with fibro is hard. Everything I do is wrong, or say is wrong. I'm not showing enough empathy. or appreciation. or acknowledgement of her pain.
    What about my feelings? They're always getting brushed off. I'm forever being told what I feel isn't real. Or I'm just trying to out compete her. I have borderline personality disorder. AKA emotional disregulation. I don't control my emotions. Everything I feel is 100 times what 'normal' people don't. You don't validate me? I get crushed.
    Oh. I'm a recovering anorexic/bulimic. And now my food is being controlled. 'you don't need that, you're too fat'. Just like my dad used to say. Did I mention my shrink thinks the stuff I heard from my dad all my life is why I'm suffering with emotions now?

    The only people I have to vent to are my Sister in law and a close friend. If my partner finds out I've spoken to them about our relationship all hell breaks loose!

    I'm just lonely and misunderstood.

    oh. She's heard me typing. Instant hackles up wanting to know what I'm doing, who I'm talking to, am I staying off 'those stupid forums'.

    Thats not healthy, and probably attributing to most of your issues. I had the same thing with my ex, he'd convinced me I was crazy and needed serious help, when in fact the only help I needed was to get away from him.
    Not saying it would solve all your problems but it might be a start.

    As above, this person is very dangerous, you need to get plans in place to get away from them. I know it's not as easy as just "leaving" there's sites out there that are great at helping you plan to get away from people like this. Let me know if you want any pointers.

    Oh and you're not misunderstood, she understands full well.

    Still be very careful, encourage her to get help if you can. If not then remove yourself from the situation if possible until she gets help.
