Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to find some support. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and have been seeing a therapist for many years. I'm very thankful for the support I've gotten from them and from most members of my family. However, my relationship with my father has suffered because of my mental illness. Even though I was diagnosed over a decade ago, he continues to call it an excuse and make me feel guilty, especially when I'm really struggling with my anxiety. He just doesn't understand. I really wish he was more supportive, but I've given up trying to explain my GAD to him because it's too emotionally painful.
