    Family counseling

    I was convinced by my family to see a psychiatrist once and for 2 years I received medicine in my drinks without my consent and not seeing that doctor during that period of time. Now I have issue with my husband, I've lost trust, I can't stop telling him how much I hate him. He is very critical and likes to contradict people, I've lost all my friend in time because of this, he is focussed only on money, and in time I've just lost the happiness. Do you think counseling will help, because now when I tell him everything that I don't like he said that he didn't change, but he changed, money has made him believe he is so smart. We can't find anything to do togheter. He likes scubadiving. I like waking, go to beach, he likes only 30 min at the gym. I eat healthy food, he is eating chips, only greek salad, pizza. Trying to eat together I and up not eating a lot of food that I like. Before we had friends that do programs and even if he was upset or indiffert he was ok to come, but in time he started to say that I should go alone. I don't know what to do.

    It sounds like there are a number of differences between you and your husband that are causing you some distress. Certainly relationship counselling may be helpful, to help you and your husband to talk through the issues you may be having, and how things may be improved for you both. If your husband is not willing to come to counselling with you, you may still benefit from seeing a relationship counsellor on your own, to have a space to think through what changes you might make that could improve things for you.
