Too much anxiety

Feel like all I do is get help from people on here. I'm 16 and I have really bad anxiety, have done for a long time now. I'm on sertraline to help now but I'm not seeing any differences just yet. Anyways, my boyfriend recently got in a accident, he is alright now but it scared me to death. I'm so dependent on him because it feels like he's my only source of happiness anymore, we've been together so long and he is so so supportive of me and my anxiety and has been so patient with me. But now I'm constantly terrified he's going to leave me and I honestly don't know how to cope, my anxiety levels would go through the roof if something happened. I know what people will be thinking - that I'm only 16. I don't know how to explain it, he's the biggest part of my life now. I don't know how to not rely on him so much? I love him so much and I know likely won't be together forever but right now it feels like forever, and I can't imagine life without him. What do i do???

  • Please don't rely on him and try find other ways of supporting yourself . Life happens sometimes. I'm not saying use will ever break up. But from personal experience it's dangerous to become attached to one person .

  • How do I become less reliant on him??? He's my bestfriend

  • I dont know but I recently got out of a relationship and I feel lost, like I dont know who I was before I met that person. How I survived on my own. But its good just to know that you can survive and cope either way.

  • I don't know if I can survive without him

  • Exactly that`s not healthy . Im hoping you never have to. But work on strengthening yourself , itll be better for the relationship and you will be able to survive on your own too. I think my anxiety ruined my relationship. I was always the one being looked after when they needed support as well. Read, educate yourself, follow your hobbies, do things you enjoy and make sure you are your own person as well. Try to find happiness in the little things again.

  • Thankyou so much! I'll try my best, I'm very sorry about your break up

  • No worries! I wish you all the best. You have so much to do still and enjoy in life! Keep believing in yourself :)
