I have been wondering of late how those experienced Carers of PTSD suffers deal with confronting a loved one about an issue you need to discuss with them? Why I ask this is what happens when something is driving you crazy and you want to talk about it with your partner (and it is too personal to discuss with friends or it directly relates to the partner) but you know your partner is not well or it may make them ill? What do you do? Avoidance is not a solution from my view point as if something is broken but no-one knows about it, well then it can't be fixed. How do you approach these situations? I have thought about putting off the discussion to a time when the suffer is better (or not as ill) but I am sure there will be times when something is urgent and cannot wait or may just lose its relevance if left. I am curious to learn of other's experience with these situations as, while I have not been placed in such a position, I have found there are times when I want to vent or just discuss what is happening but have found myself holding back in fear of making my partner worse. Does anyone have any good ideas on handling such situations?
