Hi! I've never posted anything on a message board before so please be gentle with me.
I need help telling my boyfriend that I have depression and anxiety. I don't know what to say because I'm really scared of his reaction. I truly care about this person, but feel if I don't tell him then I'll eventually lose him. He knows that I have major anxiety, but not about the depression. Lately my symptoms have been really acting up - can't constraint at work, paranoid about losing him and what he thinks about me since I've been getting mad and upset at him for minor little reasons, what people think about me, if people are having a good time while hanging with me, my self-esteem is very low, crying all the time, trusting people, super tired all the time, and too defensive. I know he really cares about me, but I feel my symptoms might push him away if I don’t tell him. I'm scared he's going to judge me and afraid that he won’t want to be with me because of my disorders. I’m just looking for some advice. Please help!!
