I need help, ASAP. I have 29 years old and 7 years ago I have diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I have been in psychotherapy treatment and now I have many tools to improve my life, at work and with others. Unfortunately, a few months ago I faced the death of a relative and my disorder worsened. I am more irritable and not very tolerant. I have a boyfriend since a year and a half, but despite my attacks of anger or irrational anger have dropped, I still have unjustified episodes of anger, screaming or unjustified recriminations, which I realize days later and apologize With him for my attitude. Muy couple could not take it anymore and yesterday he broke up with me because he could not deal with my problem, although he has always known that I suffer this disorder. Today he told me that every time we fight and I react badly he does not know who I am; if I am the woman he fell in love with or if I am that angry woman unable to control her emotions. I try to be a better version of myself every day and I know that in the last year, thanks to therapies and drugs, my attacks have gone down, but I do not know how to make my boyfriend understand that I intend to continue improving and that none of this is his fault. I know that I am not in a position to ask him to forgive me or forget my bad moods, but I would also like to ask for help to know what concrete actions I can take to show him that I am improving and that with those specific changes he can trust me again. Help, me please, it's urgent.
