Hiya MummyJu

Sorry to hear about the situation you’re in. The changes in character are part and parcel of steroid abuse, so if he’s continuing to use them, I would say in the short term, his behaviour will remain the same. But your ability to cope with it will improve. You’ve a lot of upset and unrest to contend with at the moment, you will gain strength though.

A good friend of mine was abusing steroids for years, and it had a very similar effect on his relationship with his partner. I even gave him a wide berth for a while because he became very obnoxious, short tempered and antagonistic. But in the long term, it didn’t last forever. He stopped using them eventually, his attitude changed and hes more or less back to the lad I knew before.

Obviously I can only comment from the experience I’ve had, so with any hope, it will be completely different in your case and he’s just being temporarily difficult because he feels his nose is being put out of joint. I’m not saying thats how it is, just perhaps how he sees it. It definitely sounds like you’re getting the thin end of the wedge, I do hope it improves for you though.

Take care
