I need some advice about my situation. I have great relationship with my g/f for more than 2 years now. I havent had anxiety or depression for those 2+ yrs untill this relapse. She knows that Ive had problems in the past but now shes experiencing it full force. I dont know how it is from her perspective, she tells me thats its frustrating some times cause she cant help me. I feel like im too needy now and that most of our conversations are about my crappy mood. It must be draining for her to see me like this, seeing me cry and just that thought makes me  feel guilty and horrible... i want to be the guy i used to be for her. I dont want to lose her  sad      whaat can i do?

Hi!  I know exactly how you feel.  I suffer with anxiety disorder and ocd.  When I am in a relationship I get extremely stressed out and I tend to feel like the other person doesn't deserve this and I am dragging them down.  It makes me feel guilty too.  If they care about you they will stick by you though and will understand.  My boyfriend tries to help me but its still hard for him to understand the disorder.  I am lucky to have him around though.  Just hang in there.. if you need more advice post it and I'll try to respond back.

I too have a boyfriend who is supportive YET...He cant understand the irrationalness of anxiety...He can somehow understand someones claustrophobia...also to some extent irrational...but he cant figure out why I cant walk into a store just to look around without looking for something particular when I go in...It is very hard to understand anxiety if you dont have it...If it is meant to be they will atleast be supportive and TRY to understand and help...

Ive always been completely honest with her, shes one person that i can tell my worst fears im grateful for that, shes completely open with me aswell.
Its just the idea of losing her because im used to the disorder taking from me. I know she loves me, all i can do is keep going. I have to get this idea out of my head!

I will not let these thoughts control me. There's just no evidence to support my suspision.

thanks for the replies, i had to get that off my chest.. I can take one positive out of this, that im lucky to have her and i know im with the right person.
