Recently I got into a new relationship after 4 years. Things built up over a few months, I slowly fell for him etc.
But the past couple of weeks he's gone from being in touch every day to maybe once a day or 2 days if I'm lucky. He says he's been diagnosed with an infection affecting his liver and kidneys so sleeps a LOT. I've been supportive but family and friends have suggested it doesn't take that much effort for him to reply or send a text or 5 minute phone call. So now I'm worrying myself sick over the fact he may have lost interest. I explained to him how I was feeling and he apologised saying he assumed i knew how unwell he was. We saw each other last Friday and things felt pretty much the same. But yesterday we were back to radio silence. And I'm feeling ill and out of control.
This is like the anxiety which preceded my depression and it's a nightmare. I know it's ridiculous as we haven't even been together that long but I just don't know how to manage it when we talk I feel relieved. When we don't I feel terrible. Everything has just changed abruptly and I don't know how to control or rationalise my behaviour.
If anyone has tips would be much appreciated. Sorry for the rant!
