Anxiety ruining my relationship

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me.

my anxiety is ruining my relationship. I've lived with my partner for just over a year but he's told me he's running out of patience with me.

I have severe anxiety, I've had CBT and counselling and I'm trying so hard to conquer this but I'm scared it may not happen in time.

I get anxious in social situations or when I get over tired and I take it out on him. I'm rude, spiteful and aggressive. None of these things are present when I'm not anxious. I continuously find myself looking for reassurance and freaking out massively if I haven't found it.

I've recently started having B12 injections and I feel more snappy since starting them.

If anyone has has a similar experience or an idea of what to do, I'd be so grateful.

Thank you

    Also. I think a big problem is the media saying that the man should be the one to fix you, hold you, let you yell at him and just take it because he understands, put everything aside for you. We have to remember they are humans, too. ♡

      Exactly. It's hard because I don't have to friends or family who suffer with anxiety and they are quick to blame him for not being there etc etc. But I totally see it from his side as well. It must be awful watching the person you love crumble in front of your eyes sad

      If he is fed up he isnt supportive and im not sure if he is in love. Yo need to have supportive people around you that build you up make you feel safe and  encourage you to love yourself.

      So glad you are able to see both sides! Relationships are messy, and not one way streets. Of course, he should be supportive. But I'm glad you realize true happiness comes from within. You will get there! Being able to talk about it rationally and being open to help is a great start. We will both get there.

      Also, don't get down with people telling you this is the end. Relationships go through phases. If you feel you have been vulnerable and he has preyed on that, there's an issue and you need to be open with him. Sometimes just talking calmly is more helpful than anything. Bottom line: no one knows the full dynamic of your relationship here. You know how you feel about him. And you seem smart enough to know if it's right or wrong.

    Let it end. This would never work if he is already fed up.
