My partner & I have been together 11 years, I have suffered from anxiety on and off over the years and each time he has been unsupportive and says to "pull myself together".
I have been experiencing anxiety and panic attacks before work for the last 3 weeks. I took yesterday off as a sick day which he was mad about - in his words he "has never been off work ill and always pushes through". I told him I wanted to see a doctor now and he said "sort your problems out but don't tell me all about it"! So today I went to the doctor, I totally broke down, and she signed me off for a week (she wanted to sign me off longer but that in itself makes me more anxious) - I also have made an appointment for counselling.
My partner has come home in a good mood, but not asked me how I am or anything, almost as though yesterday's "conversation" didn't happen. I don't know how to tell him I have been signed off, he is going to be angry...he said not to tell him about it all...so does he want me to do it but not tell him? I am so confused. He will know tomorrow when I'm not leaving the house for work! I don't know if I should bring it up tonight or not?!
