    I have a mental health condition.
    Im 19.. Ive been with my fiancé 5 years.
    Im constantly paranoid ( my illness causes this i trust him 100%)
    I also have really severe mood swings, which causes me to get angry over nothing or cry over the smallest things.
    I feel so bad for always getting angry at him when he has done nothing wrong,i feel sometimes he takes it to heart.
    Just before anyone says "just be nice to him"
    I CAN NOT control my mood swings, It is a MAIN factor of the mental illness i have.
    He is so caring and kind and has stood by me these last 5 years, through hospital admission, sectioning from the mental health act etc etc etc..

    I find it hard to explain what he means to me.. i feel this upsets him because he puts up with so much and i just don't show that i love him.

    Anyone ideas on what i could do to just show my appreciation for him and what he does for me?
    i want him to realise he means a lot to me and i love him and just reassure him i want to stay with him for the remainder of my life.

    (before any one says 19 is to young to get engaged.
    I am mature for my age and he is 3 years older than me.. He has gone through a lot with me I'm 100% confident he is the one so no negativity please )

    Just tell him what you told us! It's obvious you care for him a lot and don't want to hurt him, so just tell him how you feel! He'll definitely appreciate it
