  • Boyfriend going to Rehab.

    My boyfriend is about to attend a drug rehab center...I feel so alone and so heartbroken. I don’t know how to cope with this at all. He just got out of a mental hospital, and now he’s going to go to rehab for a minimum of a month and a maximum of 6 months.

    I am am so angry with him because I feel left in the wind like I’m worthless and easy to leave behind, but at the same time I know he’s just trying to make things better for him and for us.

    We have been through so much together, my family hates him, but I just want him to get better.

    My my heart hurts to an extent that physically tears at me, I feel like my heart could fail at any moment, it may seem dramatic but it’s how I feel.

    I dont know what to do.

    Hi there,

    We are sorry to hear about your current situation as it sounds tough to understand what to do as you have a variety of feelings about what’s going on and it seems like your parents aren’t being very supportive. It great that you really care about your relationship and are doing what you can to be understanding.

    Do you have accessibility to talking with your boyfriend while he is in rehab? What types of things do you already do to help you cope with other things? Who besides your parent could you talk with about what’s going on?
