I am writing in reference to my boyfriend of 6 years. I am very concerned because he seems display uncontrolled anger over
minor things and seems unable to cope with everyday problems. He is a 33 year old physician. I am very afraid because after a hard
day at his office he thinks nothing of taking a valium or some other sedative to ease his stress.
He also is seems afraid of everything: I recently found out that his mother was unaware that we were still together--she did not approve of our relationship as I am divorced and have two children. He sees her several times a week but lies to me about it constantly. I was oblivious that he had been lying to her about us-- we were planning our future together! Also, since she found out that we are together she has been driving by to see if he's here and actually came into my home demanding to know what was going on!
My brother lives in the same town as she and there have been times where I have passed "Tom" on the road and later would be
yelled at for looking for him! He has become so paranoid that it has become a problem to ask, What did you do today? I am
exhausted from being"yelled at" for anything from calling him at the wrong time to my toilet overflowing!
He also seems to not want to accept responsibility for anything. He has plenty of money but has been living in a room in the home of an elderly couple for 6 years which is ok but he
always complains about how awful it is with them there. He seems
to sweep all of his problems under the rug hoping they will disappear. I love him but I don't know if I can help him. Is
there anything that I can do?
