    Hi I've not personally had this myself but I know when my boyfriend had his depression her ended it with me because he thought he was unhappy but it was his depression. Have you gotten help from a doctor if not I would totally recommend it

      Definitely an issue with anxiety I am exactly the same..I suffer severe anxiety and panic disorder and I feel I'm losing interest even tho I no it's not me we laugh a lot he does everything for me but I do snap at him for no apparent reason..or if I think he's in the wrong I'll snap at him and tell him I don't love him but he understands as we have a close friend that's spoken to him and told him about how people feel when they have it also he understands about my whole life and all the trauma I bin thru and all he says is he's there for me no matter what..and he will never stop loving me..which makes me feel guilty coz I no snapping at him really ain't me it's my anxiety and not being able to have a sexual relationship which anxiety causes as well makes it even more sucker then it really is..all in our head Hun your not alone X big hugs

      Yeah I would say it is too I suffer from anxiety and there are times when I have worries and doubts about my relationship but it's all in my head. I know I don't know you but I'd like to give you some advice that my boyfriend gave to me when your having doubts about your relationship try thinking off two positive things about your relationship two things that made you happy with him and that always makes me feel better because by thinking about them thing you are remember what you love about them

    I honestly thought this was just me. Mine is a bit of a depression feeling, almost like on major anxiety days I'm almost positive my fiance is suddenly calling out of love with me or finding someone else so I'll randomly start distancing myself. Anxiety has caused such a drastic strain in our relationship for the past year that I honestly didn't think we would make it. (had no anxiety at all before last december). Now that he's understanding that I'm not being over dramatic anymore and realizes it is a real mental issue, he is much more comforting which makes these feelings happen less frequently.
