Hi I'm here to ask for advice and help regarding my girlfriend. See we met in college and have been together for 3 years now, I have always supported her 100% throughout her eating disorder, anxiety, and depression and I always will. But for the last year things have gotten harder... it's not really our relationship but it is her triggers. See in the last year she has developed a panic response to 2 of the main things i enjoy in life. I am a bit of a nerd and have been to Japan and speak some Japanese, and love anime of course, for some reason about a year ago she developed a trigger to anything at all related to Japan. Anything at all. This hurt but I love her and made sure to hide that part of me as best I could. But now it has become a serious problem as last month she has developed a fear of what I am majoring in. This is a serious problem as now i cant talk about my day with her, I cant study near her or let her know im studying because she knows that is what I am studying. I cant leave her to just panic, I really cant do that ever, I really do love her with all my heart but this is seriously affecting my grades and I may lose my scholarship... I won't leave her or break up with her but im really scared and struggling. So I am asking anyone who can help. What can I do? She refuses to see a psychiatrist and I've been able to help her manage most of her symptoms so far but on this nothing i seem to do helps... I swear there was no bad experience with my major that would cause this, it came completely out of the blue. One day we were talking about stuff related to it and the next she got cruel and cold when i mentioned it and then immediately panicking. Please help? anyway to get rid of a trigger without medication? Would meds even help this?
