Working with her anger

From: Junior - 3 years 48 weeks ago

My Gf of almost 7 yrs been depressed and angry over the last 3.5 yrs I'd say. Diagnosed 2yrs ago with Addison, and hyperthyroidism. Many things happened over this whole time but has been a lot of rage and almost making bad decisions due to it more lately. I feel like leaving her and her 9yr old daughter, or thought that until i have looked up more on this condition. It's very hard to keep it together and it has small ups and more downs to work threw. She s smart and funny, a great person but problems were there in the beginning from family trauma also as a young girl. I am the financial support and handy man at home. I'm trying to work with being her support, but when rage is happening I just want to run or say things back I don't mean or I'll regret. Going nuts. I know She s in pain. If any comments out there. I'd appreciate it. Sorry to seem to be thinking of my self in this. Also She is very stubborn on trying new things.

Is this good advice?

Hi, I have Addison & hypothyroid for 27 years, yes at the beginning it was a rollercoaster, my husband is a great supporter & you have to work through the ups & downs if you truly love her. It's not easy at the beginning but over time the Addison will be looked at as just a Diease that's there. Addison & thyroid will flair up sometimes & it has to be delt with, just like the flu.
