I love my boyfriend so much, we have been together for 4 years now and he is my BEST friend. Our relationship is practically perfect in every way... except for me...
I suffer from moderate/severe depression. Because of this I often worry about becoming a burden to my boyfriend, I get scared that he will get fed up of me being such a buzz-kill and will want to break up with me. I am so scared of a break-up because (as I am already depressed) I don't know how I would cope with it.
I am currently recieving treatment for my depression but it's a slow process and I don't know how long it will take before I am better. But if my boyfriend breaks up with me before I feel strong enough to handle life's ups and downs I don't know what I'll do - I'm terrified and it is getting to the point where it is stopping me from being happy when I'm with my boyfriend, even tho he is one of the few things that nearly always makes me happy.
Help anyone? Does anyone know what I should do to stop worrying about this so much?

Well firstly, it's great that you are receiving treatment. That's always the hardest step. Coming to terms with that you have a problem and need to seek help for that problem.
All you have to do now is trust that your boyfriend will understand, support you and be patient.
If he isn't, then he just isn't worth your time. Though by reading, and by learning that you've been together for four years, I would expect that most of your worry is just natural anxiety. Talk what you've wrote over with him too, that might clear up some of that anxiety.
