This is Dr. David
from your description and the situation, he could very well have an underlying personality disorder.
it sounds like he has definitely been projecting alot of issues onto you.
and his constant marijuana use doesn't help either.
I would trust your instincts about not trusting him with your child.
it sounds like he could also be suffering from excessive anxiety or OCD and is poorly treating it with his cannabis use.
or he could have a boarderline personality disorder or boarderline personality traits.
He has said himself that he suffers from anxiety. His obsessive behavior is repetitive. He can't cope with normal life or being without cannabis. I deem this as an addiction. He is a loving father & I am allowing him to visit his daughter at my home. But in regards ***** ***** consistancy & honesty he can't be trusted. I am waiting for talking therapy myself, the mornings are the worse times for me where I just cry. I would like to be away from the situ but can't because of our daughter. It just seems to make it harder, the hurt kinda drags on. I'm just immersing myself in yoga & meditation in order to keep a sense of peace.
I suspected anxiety disorder or OCD and self treatment with cannabis.
Any other recommendations for myself? & any suggestions to how this can be approached with him?
I am glad you are getting yourself into therapy a
and are doing yoga
it doesn't sound like he is ready to see a doctor and get his anxiety disorder and OCD properly treated with prescription medication.
it sounds like he wants to continue to take cannabis which is not really that great of a treatment for anxiety disorder and OCD.
No I didn't think he would be ready. Cannabis makes it worse if anything. Think its best we concentrate on ourselves. thank you for your feedback & confirming my thoughts :)

best of luck to you and your child
