Worried about my partner... Please help!

I'm worried about my partner we have been together coming 4 years and his whole situation is getting worse and Im at a loss. I will start with his mood swings, one moment he will be happy, laughing and smiling within a split second he can totally change and no matter what I say or do he becomes very aggressive, not physically but verbially. To the point that even if I look at him he snaps my nose off but just as easy he can change back to being happy, it can last 5 minutes or a few hours. There is also no warning when it will happen. He has recently started night shift work but even before this he always slept during the day and was up at night if he isnt working he will sleep on and off for at least 14 to 15 hours a day and if I do try wake him he will once again get quite aggressive. He also doesnt eat that much basically if I dont make him food its rare that he will make something himself. He basically just has dinner and dips into a few things during the day like the odd bag of crisps, on days he is working he will eat a packed lunch I make for him aswell as dinner and thats pretty much it. Lastly this is quite a touchy subject with him but his complete lack of sex drive we havent had sex or anything close to that in over 2 months now. Its been getting less and less the longer we are together I have tried many things and even sat down to talk to him about it but he 'doesnt like talking about stuff like that'. From what his Mum and Dad have said he has always been like with his mood, sleeping patterns and eating habits for aslong as they can remember (he is 27years old now) but its getting worse as the years are going on and I really want to help him. I love him more then anything and I know he would rather stick his head in the sand then ask for help and I dont want this to be the breaking point for us. I really hope someone has some sort of idea as to why this is happening or where I can find out.

Low blood sugar can trigger aggression. If that's part of it a better diet would help. As a first step though how about him visiting a doctor to make sure there isn't some medical cause, like a thyroid problem or something that can be easily treated.

Its not working for you and no-one should live with what you're describing You have to make clear that sticking his head in the sand - and not dealing with this - isn't an option.
