To cut a long story short...
I was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety half way through my first year at uni. This completely de railed me, I was 350 miles away from home and locked myself away in my room for days on end despite my flatmates being genuinely concerned and my boyfriend and parents back at home constantly ringing me and nagging me about me failing my course.
Due to the side affects of my meds and the stress of everything else, I gradually stopped going to lectures at all, drinking and cheating on my boyfriend regularly and then running away for days on end to try "clear my head". I was a complete mess.
Until Dan. He was one of my flatmates who I had confided with due to the fact he had previously had mental health issues which he had been treated successfully for and we became extremely close. This resulted in me finally breaking it off with my boyfriend of two years and becoming completely and utterly in love with Dan who is the nicest guy I have ever met.
We have been together for six months and he has been my rock and has helped me through some particularly difficult times. But now even if we are not together for just a couple of days I completely fall apart again and don't want to get out of bed. I do not feel strong enough without him, even though he has told me I am.
Has anyone else had this problem? Where they have felt completely dependant on someone??
