Hello, I am new to the site. I haven't been diagnosed with anxiety and am weary to see a professional or to be put on medication. I thought having support could really help. Anxiety is a new feeling to me. I was in a relationship a couple years ago and thought "he was the one." We had all these future plans together and I thought things were great. Then, out of nowhere he broke up with me. I didn't realize I had anxiety until I got in my next relationship. Now, I think because of that past relationship, I'm insecure. I know that I have irrational thoughts. I know I over think and over analyze things and create problems out of nothing. I worry that something is wrong when I have no reason to think that, and then something is wrong because I've created this problem. My boyfriend has also struggled with anxiety, so he is understanding and will reassure me, but I know it takes a toll on him and I can feel my anxiety putting a strain on our relationship. He's never given me a reason not to trust him. I should be more confident in our relationship. Reassuring me all the time has to be annoying. I feel like my anxiety is going to push him away and cause exactly what I'm afraid of, him leaving. I don't know how to control my thoughts. Even though I know they're irrational, they seem to take control of me. I hate not feeling in control.
