 Heightened agitation ruining my relationship
Andy zambrano (172.58.27.---)   6:54pm Jul 10 2018

Hey everyone. Im a 28 year old chef and musician with a broke pinky on my dominant hand. Before my injury I was would definitely say im a workaholic and a control freak. Although my emotional stability was really strong and i was able to take on high stress. But lately My mental health has really been effected by my now 3 month injury. My girlfriend has been taking me to all my appointments and helping me with surgery/doctor visit payments. Shes pretty much the only person I see everyday (huge change from my highly social characteristics) and I have to wait for her to get home from work with anything I need. I lose my temper with her regularly with any thing that bothers me and I hate it. Not being able to do stuff for my own is a big contributor. We are great at communicating, so I always explain that its my situational depression coming up. At this moment I need her to be emotionally stronger then me to help me get through this but shes also dealing with her own depression/ identity crises so its unfair for me to have her carry all the weight.

Anyone else dealing with mental health issues effecting your relationship due to bone injuries? What are your thoughts?
