Wow Britt, I am so sorry your dealing with all of this on your own. I can understand that greatly as I too have went though that with my husband (now ex). He reacted to me exactly the same way you explained your boyfriend does to you. This was after I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and had already had major depression, anxiety/panic disorder with PTSD. He was totally against me taking any sort of medications, going to doctors, or participating in treatment or even talking to me about my illnesses. So I was left to deal with it all on my own which in part was reason why I finally left.
I would suggest that since your boyfriend is responding to you in anger that you try to pick a time to discuss these things when it is not in a heightened situation (such as after he comes home from the bar). Sit and talk about them reasonably no matter how difficult it is as I know it is very personal to you and he is hurting you. I cant say why he is angry with you several things come to mind but I dont know the situation and dont feel comfortable posting it. But it would seem that he doesnt understand what is going on with you and instead of being a support system for you he is making matters worse. If you cant get him to sit and talk with you reasonably about it perhaps you can write him a letter regarding it....I dont know what ever you feel most comfortable with but you do need to communicate to him what your going to require in your relationship.
Or maybe your counselor will let him sit in on one of your sessions to be a group sort of thing so your boyfriend can come to some sort of understanding...if he will go that is. You do have several options.
Please know we are always here for you....
