It has recently come to my attention that my partner may not be a good choice in the area of surrounding myself with 'safe' people for recovery. She doesn't drink, or use, or any of that, but by the same token, she doesn't care to get involved in my rehabilitation, or care to try to understand my mental illness and my behaviors. This sets things up for all kinds of havoc. Two nights ago, we got into an arguement, first one in a long time. We yelled at each other, then last night we talked. Turns out, she made a realisation about herself, and had to share it with me. BUT she didn't want to hear my side of how I interpreted her stance. I've realised that this is how it's been all along (we've been together almost 6 years now). The question in rehab yesterday was posed to me: "Have you considered removing your partner from your circle of recovery?" It makes sense, it's not like I'd be leaving her. Just removing her from my recovery at the emotional investment level. However, that just doesn't sit right, I mean, partners are supposed to be there for each other right?
