Hello everyone.
I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I have been in a relationship with a wonderful guy for the past 7 months. Right from the start he told me that he has had difficulty lately with relationships, and that he wished he could be "normal" so he could have a normal relationship. He feels depressed, anxious, and makes impulsive decisions he later regrets and gets down on himself for. But I wanted to give it a try. Things were great for a few months and we got very close, but it seemed like just when we would get close he would back away from the relationship (even though it was him who initiated the closeness in the first place). We broke up for the first time after coming back from a weekend trip together. He gave me the excuse that he is depressed, stressed out, and doesn't know what's wrong with him. After a few days, however, he couldn't stand to be without me and we were back together... Only to have the same thing happen just 3 months later. He did see a psychologist who told him he has BPD. He has been seeing her regularly, but still goes from one extreme to another... talking about marriage then freaking out about spending too much time together. I am confused and exhausted from all this, but I don't want to abandon him. I know he loves me, but he doesn't seem to know what he wants or what he needs to do to be "normal". He was recently put on Lexapro, so I am hoping that will help. I want to stick by him through this because we both want to be together. Any advice on how I can be a help to his recovery?
