I’m Not Sure What To Do

Hi, my name is Madison and I’ve been struggling with my anxiety more than usual. The feeling doesn’t go away and I can’t eat now because of it. I also keep getting intrusive thoughts thinking I’m losing feelings for my boyfriend or that I don’t love him anymore even though they aren’t true, the pain makes it seem very real and I’m not sure what to do anymore.

Hi madison have you tried taking to anyone about how you're feeling! Anxiety is a hard thing to deal with do you have depression also if so try consulting with your doctor because he's best placed to know how to treat you! Have you tried talking to you b/f about how you feel do you think it the fact you are not in a good place you can't devote the time you ordinarily would he may be more accepting of how you are if only you open up! I wish you all the best for a bright future 👀

I haven’t been able to see a doctor yet, but I have been diagnosed with depression before. My boyfriend knows everything that has been going on and he’s been amazing. The thoughts came out of nowhere and I don’t know how to get rid of them. And thank you.

Hi, I've been there. My anxiety has definitely taken a toll on my relationship at times. But what has helped both of us is to talk about it. That way he can understand more what's going on and how how you're feeling isn't his fault. Plus, then he can be there as an extra support for you.

You could try to find a therapist or peer support group near you as well to help you speak with people who understand.

Honestly you need to see doctor and start treatment. I kept putting it of saying to myself it will get better on its own or as soon as this specific issue is resolved ill be back to normal. But it just gets worse. My wife begged me for years to get help and i wouldn't until i almost killed myself...my wife is the most loving supportive person i know and never once turned her back on me or gave up on me, she would defend me when people didnt understand what was wrong, and take care of me when i stopped caring for myself. Talk to your boyfriend...there should never be secrets...if he truly loves you he will listen and support you

It is good that you are open with your boyfriend about your anxiety. All relationships need to have a strong foundation of trust and openness. I hope you are able to see your doctor soon. I found that my feelings couldn't be trusted during my greatest struggle with anxiety and depression. My doctor was extremely helpful.
