Thank you @nash for your reply. I do feel much better after sharing this. Most importantly I no longer feel alone.
When I can get some time alone I will definitely contact the help centre you mentioned. I really do want to support my partner, but first and foremost I need to make sure I look after myself. After all if I’m not happy, it’s hard for me to provide the support my family so desperately needs.
after some messages today from my partner I have been able to articulate how I am feeling and the impact this is having on me. My partner has asked if we can talk tonight which I’ll be doing shortly.
Thank you again and I’ll keep this post updated on how I go with everything.
