My Relationship Anxiety

by Imogen

It all started when I was 17 years old. I was in my first ever 'serious' relationship, but I always felt a sense of discomfort when I was not with my man. Nine months into the relationship I started to feel these feeling extremely badly, with a cold stabbing feeling in my chest and my head telling me that I want to leave.. five days later I did, and it was one of the hardest things I'd done so far. I have now had two relationships that have ended due to this 'anxiety' and currently I am starting to feel the anxiety again around the guy I am seeing, even though I am really keen on him.
I hope that one day I will defeat this demon, but if anyone else has had this problem before please help me through this I am totally out of options.

You're Not Alone
by: Anna

I've had anxiety since I was 14, now almost six years later, I still have high anxiety. Being in a relationships has always been difficult for me, as the anxiety bites away at my thoughts often. I try my best to calm that side, but it's often hard to do so. I understand your struggle, and you are not alone.
