About 4 weeks ago, I met this guy and we really hit it off. I felt like I'd known him forever and like I could tell him anything. We're so similar yet so different and we both think we're perfect for eachother. Things got pretty serious, pretty quick in terms of stages in our relationship. We started dating about a week after we met and have seen eachother pretty much every single day since. I've told him about my anxiety, my emetophobia, panic attacks, etc. I've let myself open up completely and be vulnerable in this relationship. I have never told anyone (not even close friends) about my anxiety. When I told him, he was very understanding, supportive and non judgemental. We have already said "i love you", something we both take seriously after just 2 weeks. I truly think I may have met the love of my life. Now, the down side is that lately my anxiety has been getting in the way. I constantly find myself questioning his love for me (even though he doesn't give me a reason to question it). I keep having thoughts such as, "he's falling out of love with you", "he probably thinks your crazy", "he's going to get bored of you", "he's going to break up with you", etc. These thoughts make me depressed and sad to a point where I don't want to leave my bed. I'm constantly worrying and wanting reassurance. I just don't feel like I'm good enough for him, I think I'm too difficult of a person and nobody should have to/would want to put up with me and my anxiety. These thoughts are very draining and often result in physical symptoms such as stomach aches too. I over analyze every little thing. For example, if he's not talking, I start to worry that he's mad at me, bored, wants to break up with me, or isnt having fun. If he gives me a short text response, I think that he's losing interest and this is his way of slowly cutting me off (only later to find out that he was just busy at work). I hate thinking this way, and I feel like it's putting a strain on our relationship. This is also my first serious relationship so I dont know how to act and always worry I'm doing something wrong. Please help.
