I've been on Wellbutrin XL for about 5 months now and finally my mood is happier and I want to do more things that interest me. I don't mind getting out to see friends as much, which was a huge issue before. But over the past two weeks, I've wanted aboslutely nothing to do with my boyfriend of about 3 years. We live together, and he hasn't done anything wrong for me to feel like this.
But I can't stop thinking about wanting to be away from him or break up with him. We don't have much in common, but we've always worked well together. I've always been attracted to him, too. But now I look at him and can't even see that. I don't want to be intimate at all, not even sit with our arms touching on the couch. I want to be with my friends or talk to my friends online more than I want to be home with him.
I don't understand why I feel like this. It is something with my medicine or have I just simply fallen out of love? How do I even handle that?
As a side note, I've noticed recently that even though he tries, it's very apparent that he can't handle my anxiety or depression as much. He's always been as supportive as he can be, but when I try to get him to reaffirm our relationship and his confidence in it, he just says that he knows my depression and anxiety won't last forever (my doctor said it was likely caused by a car accident and may go away after time). I can't help but feel guilty that he has to deal with this and angry that he can't deal with this at the same time.
I don't want to have this conversation if it's just my depression talking - I can't afford to live alone and not have his support at the moment.
I'm completely lost.
