    Welcome! :)

    Yeah that's not normal at all - he definitely needs to see someone about this. This doesn't sound a healthy relationship at all, and maybe you might reconsider staying in a relationship if this is how you're treated. Speak to him about getting help - if he refuses, then I'd consider leaving - you really don't need to be sacrificing your daily wellbeing for this x

    Hello Cerys,

    This seems like such a tough position for you to be in and it does sound like you're concerned about his behaviour. Although it may not be an illness, there are also chances that it could be so I really would recommend speaking to a GP or if things get really bad where you don't feel safe or feel as if he isn't safe then you can always call 999. It must be quite unpleasant and scary for you. We don't want you to feel unhappy or have pressure on your shoulders to try and help him, that is down to professionals if he needs it. If he doesn't want to see anyone then that is his choice but sometimes these problems become more difficult and bigger later on if it is an untreated illness so it is always better to seek some support. 

    I hope that things get better for both of you and I hope that you both stay safe. :)
