My ex and I recently got back together after being apart for a year. He has changed drastically and we have resolved many issues that we had trouble with in the past. Our biggest problem was no communication, he wouldn't talk with me to work out problems. His idea of solving a problem was move on, basically sweep everything under the rug and move forward. I needed to talk things out and then put it behind us, but he flatly refused. I finally stopped trying and things started building up inside until we broke up. He totally destroyed my trust in him. Our relationship is good now, he's trying really hard, but I am terrified of feeling that pain again. When something small happens, I question things in my mind. I went to a mental health clinic because I know this is a problem with me. The counselor that I spoke with said that I suffer from anxiety, stress, depression but that could be treated by my family doctor. The appointment only lasted for a few minutes and I didn't get the opportunity to even discuss this problem. In the last four years, I have moved to another state after living in one small area my whole life (I'm 40 something), my only brother and two friend all committed suicide in a 25 day period, and many other drastic life changes that I won't even get into. I have no one to talk to except my ex, now present and I would love to hear opinions from others to try to learn how to trust him and have support for my other issues.
