"YTA and your wrong saying getting professional help isn't part of the issue. It is your responsibility for get help for your mental health. You are now forcing things on your partner with your 'coping.' Your obsession with time is now affecting others. It is unfair to your partner that you want to change things in her life without getting help. And if I was her, I'd be afraid that your mental health will continue to decline and she'll be forced to continue changing her life to coddle you in a way that is actually not helping you." 💔
