My boyfriend seems to suffer from anxiety and I really don't know what to do to help him. He lives a very lonely life and since we've started going out has managed to go out a bit more, but is completely unable to do anything social on his own. He feels threatened by anything and anyone and has very sad views about most ethnic groups, is totally disrespectful of my feelings and thoughts and feels that the world is a very bad place. Things are so bad that he is unable to sleep most nights, we're completely unable to have a sex life because he suffers from performance anxiety and we hardly talk. I've tried to help him, asked him to get help and so far he's refused. I'm so frustrated by the whole thing that I haven't made any contact with him for days, I can't cope with the sadness and frustration and feel rejected and useless. I can't see him destroy himself and not care. How can I help him when he withdraws and keeps me at arms length? Thanks
