I just wanted to get other's experiences of how GAD affects your relationships.
Personally, I have found that friends invite me to parties (one of my worst nightmares) Or events and when I say no, they havent really understood in the past. I've had arguments over keep saying no - they felt I wasn't being a good friend. Or, I'd go but feel super awkward and panicked and I hated every second
when it got to this stage, I had to explain that I feel extremely uncomfortable in large groups and feel much happier in smaller ones. I don't know about anyone else, but I haven't really told my friends about GAD. What have others done? Is it a good idea to tell them or not?
I have told my partner, who is the total opposite to me - he's so chilled out that he's horizontal!! (Don't we all wish we had this?) He's being as supportive as he can be but because he's so laid back, I don't think he gets it. Plus, I think he's getting fed up of continuously re-affirming that our relationship is ok (I even get on my own nerves). I'm terrified he will leave me and I'm very upset and tearful every day about it.
what are others stories? Can anyone relate?
