Need Support from my Husband
Hi, this is my first post. I'd like to know how others deal with their emotional problems without the support of their partner. I know partners must get tired of their partner's problems but mostly I would just like a hug and a bit of love if I have a bad experience. I don't have close friends or other family who can do this either.

Qld thanks for your post. This is a very thought provoking question.
have you ever asked for what you would like.
I have learnt not to rely on a loved one who can’t give me what I need.
I f I don’t expect it I learn to be my own support network.
Have you asked for a hug directly? I've been doing that or just hug my partner when I'm down. I also hug a pillow.
