I am new on this forum. I am male and am married to an awesome guy who was a victim of child abuse. It's been a steep learning curve for me as he has a lot of issues stemming from the abuse.
It's been very challenging at times to understand his issues, especially when things seem to be going so well and then suddenly tank and he is in crisis mode.
My biggest challenge is staying calm and to not get emotional when he is having a rough go of it. I feel extreme rage towards his abusers, but he will fly off the handle if I express that. I'm often walking on eggshells with him.
I am wondering if anyone has seen a therapist themselves to deal with the stress of having a partner with an abuse history?
