I Am Not Married...but I am crazy about someone with PTSD. He is in the National Guard and it was triggered in his first deployment when he got shot. He told me within a couple of weeks about his disorder and since my uncle has it from his days in 'Nam I really thought that it would be no big deal to me.
We have been together for roughly a year now, but have known each other longer. It has been really bad within the past couple of months. I haven't heard from him in about 3 days now, and all of my friends are saying that I can't blame it on the disorder, but I drive by his house on my way to and from work, and his car is there alone. So I know that he isn't cheating or anything of that nature.
Am I really wrong in making these "excuses" for him? Or is this distance normal? This has happened before, and while it has gotten "easier" to deal with I am really not comfortable with the situation. Is there any advise that you guys can offer me?
