Stonewalling partner in recovery by

My partner has been in recovery since July 2020. We gave the relationship another chance after rehab. I believe him to be sober this time and I can see ways he’s worked on turning his life around. Our relationship has recently taken a downhill pattern though. He stonewalls me in conflict and refuses to acknowledge my emotions if I am upset about anything. He’ll decide what I’m feeling and choose that my feelings are unfounded or unnecessary, therefore not worth his acknowledgment. It’s so hurtful. Small issues will blow up because I’ll start to see his behaviour more than I’ll stick to my original point. It’s so draining. I don’t know what I can do. Nothing seems to get resolved anymore :(

So Lost breaking up with cocaine addict by

He hasn’t been back home, my brother has taken him in. I feel like my boundaries are strong at the moment, my plan is to support from this distance for now. It’s going to take lots of time for him to put his life into a better shape after rehab, and that’s down to him. I know he’s scared of lots of things going on right now so I am talking him through his fears but keeping a sensible gap with him. He firstly needs to see this through and although it’s booked for Monday- there are a lot of obstacles he needs to get himself through. If he wants this help (rehab) he needs to fight other escape urges he might feel to get through it
