Welcome to HealingWell. I am so happy that you have joined us.
It sounds like you two need to talk about this. Let him know that you need your space. I am that way too. I need a lot of alone time. If I don't see another human being for a week, it doesn't bother me. Though I do like people now. I didn't use to.
I guess you have to do it in a manner that doesn't make him feel unloved. Maybe set aside a time of day just for you. It sounds like he is a little needy, though I may be totally off base with that. But he has to learn that you are a solitude person and need that time for yourself. Just be gentle. When you are feeling closed in on, take a deep breath. Try to relax, it will get better.
I hope that this has helped you some. I am in fibrofog today so my mind isn't that good. I am sure that I have more helpful hints for you as I am the same way. I use to make my alone time a nice warm bath at night. But I don't do that anymore. I would listen to music, light candles and the whole shot. It was a nice time.
