Relationship in tatters

Been married 3 years together for 15 in total.
There have been ups and downs.
Most recently being finding out I have fertility problems just over 6 months ago.
And more receby Graves' disease.

We bicker all the time.
He drinks every day (not to the point of being drunk but enough).
He is has become overweight and the sex which used to be good is somewhat awful now, to the point where I am avoiding it.

We are no longer affectionate at all.
We havent said I love you to each other for months.

Today we had an argument whilst walking the dog and I got angry and shouted.
He stormed off leaving me trailing behind about 3/4 mile.

Straight after this we saw friends so played happy families.
They went neay 3 hours ago and shortly after they left he stormed out.

I don't know what to do.
I'm fed up of apologising.
I'm fed up of living like this and feeling sad so much

Let him stay gone. Look after yourself. Here is the beginning of a hassle free life!

Can I ask how recently you were diagnosed with graves and what was your last blood reading like?

This doesn't sound like agod atmosphere to be living in espically when you need calm around you.

I was diagnosed last week after 4 weeks of my blood tests being done.
I'm not too sure what the results were but showed on each test that my thyroid was getting more overactive

Graves can really effect your personality, it can make you irritable, uptight, anxious. I have graves and so would just ask your dp to give you a break as its not your fault and you maybe acting out of character.

Google graves and relationship problems, go easy on uoursrlf
