Darn it, I just missed you online again.

I think that boulder metaphor is a good one. It really speaks to feeling stuck and in pain. I'm sorry it's getting bigger. I'm kind of at a loss about what to say here, and I suspect it's because you are at a loss, too.

Can you go in and try to talk about the boulder? No need to make progress, be brave, or have any expectations except just to tell him where you are at... stuck under something painful you cannot move alone. And being stuck like that pretty much would require rescue. Are you afraid he won't? Or maybe that the boulder might fall back down on you both, and then what? Can you try to think about getting the boulder propped up a bit so you can breathe, and maybe let him sit with you while you just rest?

Wish I had a crane....
