My partner of only 8 weeks has come off venlafaxine. we'll refer to him as Bob, we met at the start of December, we knew each other nearly 30 years ago and went out for a short time (we were just kids) When we met in december there was an imediate spark and we fell in love very quickly, this sounds like something I would never have believed in, it happens in fairytales but not real life, right?, but it happened. We have texted each other every day and obviously met up when we could, everything was very good, we had a laugh, chatted about old days, and about how we feel about each other now, untill 2 weeks ago, suddenly there are massive misunderstandings, the only way I can describe it is how bob worded it, 'we have completely different concepts and understandings of the written word, phrases, paragraphs, the lot. none of these issues happen when we are face to face'. Things I say seem to, in his words 'hurt' him and 'p***' him off ........based on the fact there wasn't a problem before 2 weeks ago, is it possible that I have started wording things differently? (as suggested by bob) apart from bob coming off venlafaxine, he has gone thru a really bad time. He was made redundant (altho is now starting a new job) and he lost his stepmum just after new year. He really has gone thru a lot.....Sorry this is long but, really what I would like to know is, could this problem somehow be conected to him coming off this stuff, or is it just a simple case of we shouldn't be together. If it could be conected, I want to help him thru and support him. If it's nothing to do with this then, obviously I don't want to seem like a cling on and stress him out. I really need some constructive help from anyone how may relate to anything I've said. Thanks for reading this.
