my boyfriend has graves disease
I would love some advice on this!
My boyfriend has just been diagnosed with graves disease, I am pretty sure they have caught it fairly early, and he has been put straight on medication to manage the hyperthyroidism. After doing some initial research I was not too worried, it looks manageable; but after reading threads where the disease has torn relationships/marriages/families apart I have become worried.
we have been together for quite a while now and are familiar with health complications, I have had a chronic pain condition since I was 14 years old, so coming up 6 years, this has at times made things hard for my partner. he went through periods where he felt helpless/worried. I feel now I am in his position, I have no idea how to help him, I am being supportive and am not going anywhere, we have a very strong relationship.
are there any tips/ ways to help him manage his condition, to support him better?
