Congratulations! And has your relationship been damaged by your partner’s drinking...
The most sparkling congratulations to Wills and Kate and here's hoping her debilitating morning sickness passes soon. With my second I had terrible morning sickness that thankfully only lead to bed rest on three separate weeks and not hospitalisation so I know a taste of what she's going through.
And congratulations to all other expectant couples - never lose sight of the fact that you're a couple as well as parents and take it events each of the remaining months you have as just the two of you before the big arrival!
Now on to other things...anything in moderation is enjoyable but if your partner's drinking or gambling has ruined your relationship how do you handle it? I tackled this in my Love Clinic on iVillage UK today.
These big issues for relationships are often hard to tackle on your own and I'd urge anyone to get help from a recovery programme - the appropriate 12 step programme for your partner’s and yours issue. Because one thing’s for sure if they've been drinking [or gambling, too, as in this woman's case] it's a joint problem for you both if you're going to stick together.
TODAY’S TIP: Take the first step today by getting some advice from a trusted professional like your GP. The other practical step to take is finding out where your local meetings are.
Just take some action today - don't let this issue ruin your relationship for good
Take care of yourself, Pamx
