My husband is Unwell. He’s a stress related disaster zone

I really don’t know how to help
He’s been doing 12 hr Day or or night shifts alternate weeks and he’s as worried and distressed as I’ve ever seen him
He’s got a GP appointment for his symptoms
I’ve not been supportive at all

It’s good that he’s got a GP appointment. Can he take medical leave from.work if necessary?

Hope he feels better soon @Three. You too!

Thank you for your reply
I wouldn’t know where to start suggesting that.

He’s worked since age 17 he’s now 48
Thank you for this suggestion
It’s a good idea
I think if he takes fluoxetine which i really want him to take if prescribed he might be okay
I will Continue to suggest changing job
He’s started looking
But we have a mortgage and 1000 people out of work because of Covid for every job
Our security depends on him working for the moment
Which probably causes. a lot of stress for him

I’ve been saying it’s okay for him to retrain but that’s added stress at the moment I think

Thanks eight. Yes I’ve been awful
Aggressive behaviour and high irritability
We are a few nights with me staying at my mums and he’s working nights
I’ve not seen him like this
Im less kind to him than ever
