I have been strugling with anxiety and depression my whole life. After I was raped at 16, I have had PTSD. I found it difficult to be in a good, healthy relationship, where my partner respects me and loves me for who I am. I have been cheated on many times and abused in past relationships.
Now I have found someone, who supports me, loves me deeply for who I am and our relationship is blooming: but I still fear that my anxiety and PTSD will mess things up. I have nightmares, panic attacks, fear and anxiety weekly.
I try to hide it from my partner, because I find it difficult to talk about and I fear that he will love me less if he knows about my dark thoughts and worries. I know my partner is faithful and loves me, but I still fear they will get bored, cheat and leave. If I share my fears (which are unreasonable, I'm aware), I'm afraid I will hurt his feelings and our relationship. But he knows something is going on.
What should I do? I apologize for the long story.
