Last week I had one of those crappy day moods. And I have no idea why. Nothing that I know of triggered it. I couldn't break out of it. So I just tried to do my work and stay away from other people.

I know what you mean!

I've often half-joked with my partner saying: "they say about pregnant women and their mood swings but phew! living with you sure feels like a mental-crazy-mood-swing-rollercoster!"

I always try to ignore his friggin moods. Sometimes I manage, sometimes he takes me down with him.

yes, he also sometimes doesn't know why he is in such a vile mood. Sometimes I know (even though he doesn't remember) that he has had nightmares. (I am a very light sleeper)

Sometimes he explodes in anger about something ridiculously small and then we have to sit together and discuss the real root (we usually discover is the stress and nightmares)

you're not alone

what you are describing is called dissociation. he is simply dissociative. read about it.
i have seen my husband changing from the most loving and caring guy who gave me a hug to someone who right in front of my eyes turned into an ice cold fish totally without any feelings. by now- i know how he is doing, i can see it everytime it happens. he still doesnt know or can control it, but he is ready to at least believe me when i say it happens. then he grounds himself and tries to get himself back. read about dissociation and grouding exercises. no joke, they do help.

i also see that you are not ready to give your life up to the "shit". thats a very healthy statement. you dont have to leave him or stop loving him, but if you set your personal boundries, its very healthy. you need to. you have a very sick person at home, not his fault, but very sick!

everything is always okay in the end, if it's not, then it's not the end
