So sorry to hear about your beloved fur baby @Georgie_Girl . I hope you can find a whole bunch of special self-care activities this week to help honour him and what he meant to you.
Things are bumpy for me at the moment. My hubby’s mi is undiagnosed, and one that hides in the shadows. I chose many years ago to take on the slow decline of our relationships under its effects, hoping for rescue in the process, rather than the “big bang” that would have occurred if I had tried to leave at that point ..... at any point in fact.
We are up to selling houses (our former home in another state and the one we moved to here) and buying one with separate bedrooms. It really sucks, but it is what it is, and pragmatism has to rule.
Silver linings - I am getting a study space, and one of the kids will get a real room, not the study nook they have been living in since the move.
I can understand where you’re coming from. My hubby was undiagnosed/misdiagnosed for almost 18 years. It’s such a difficult situation to deal with. I lived like I was walking on egg shells constantly and always felt so deflated.
It took a major blow up for him to finally seek help and find a great psychiatrist who diagnosed his BiPolar II. It’s been about 3 months now, and him being medicated for me to see some improvement.
