Im a bit confused over the PTSD issue. Does he have it or not? It might be me being a bit thick, so appologies in advance if it is! lol
I think the cold, honest truth is that if he is stuck on the idea that there is nothing wrong and that he doesnt need to change, then he wont. A person can only change properly if they can see a reason for it. Have you talked about marriage councilling with him? Has he any official medical diagnoses? (Such as depression etc...) and if so, does he take any medications or do any therapy to help them?
Hi there Angel,
I understand now. I have a long family history in the military (Army and Navy) and I understand that the military has a jaded view when it comes to mental illness. PTSD is something members of the British Armed Forces have been fighting to have recognised for many years. Things are better than they were but it is still swept under the carpet sometimes. All you can do really is keep fighting for the recognition. What do the Army say is wrong? If they are saying there is nothing to diagnose, then they are effectively saying that your partner is faking the symptoms... this is something I would bring up with them.
