    I'm 26 and met my boyfriend May last year. It's my first proper relationship after suffering crippling anxiety for the last 3 years, to the point of me not being able to go out. It was related to work stress and since I've been and got a new job the anxiety has got better,
    I have good days and bad days.

    I'm worried I'm going to ruin my relationship. I'm over sensitive and overthink things which make me panic and tell him it's over between us. The last thing I want to do is lose him but when I feel anxious I push him away. This happens about once a month when my period is due and my anxiety heightens. I've started taking the pill but it hasn't helped to regulate things so far. I'm terrified I'll lose him, what can I do to help this?

    I have mild anxiety, and it makes me worry about the future. So whenever I'm with my partner (who I've been with for almost six years now) I look, say, 50 years into the future and think "wow, will we still be together then" and I panic about what would happen if we got married and fell out of love, or if we had children and hurt them by splitting up.. and it's ridiculous, because nobody knows what's going to happen, so there's no point in worrying about it.

    Sorry that I don't have any advice. Just wanted to let you know that you're absolutely not alone!
