Extremely embarrassed and feel like I don’t deserve a relationship

After my episode in November where I stayed in hospital I broke off contact with my partner for a month in my delusional state. Now I’m embarrassed to face his family because I was mean and feel bad and guilty. I feel like his family would rather me end it with him because somethings wrong with me.

If your partner really cares about you, and I think he does, he will never let his family interfere. Even more, he will vouch for you and defend you in front of anyone who disapproves of your relationship.

What do you and your partner want? I’d focus on that

@andrey @pianogal thanks guys, he really does care about me,I really care about him and thats why I don’t want to hurt him. I am scared it will happen again… But if it does I need a treatment plan… I don’t want to see him hurt again… I hurt him by pretending to be with someone else because I thought it best to split with him and he was better off with someone else…

You should make your decisions, as if his family weren’t around.

if you both want to be in a relationship then that is all that matters… shouldn’t worry about his family cause they are outside of what you 2 have. But i get why you feel like this though… you also don’t know what will happen in the future… maybe you don’t relapse if you stable on your meds.
