Please help me, my girlfriend has GAD and I am struggling to cope with it, we have been together for 8 years and have 2 children, it has only been since the children were born that this has happened.
I have been trying so hard to support her she has had counselling and everything was going ok this has since stopped and doesn't wish to take pills or medication as she sees it that she shouldn't have to pop pills to make herself better and I should be able to cope with her.
The problem is I'm not coping with it I am trying and have joined here to get more help as I am at a point where I feel like giving up and walking, please don't see it as I'm an arse I am trying on a daily basis to be there and talk and cope and help with it as much as I can.
Some of the frustrations I have is the negative attitude all the time the constant worry about everything the questions about where I have been, the need to be with me all the time not wanting to give me space or time to do anything, the constant need to talk about the same thing over and over again, whenever I give her the solution there is always a negative response or worry or what if's. The fear that something bad is going to happen all the time.
It does get very bad and causes arguments which seem like on a constant basis, this is again something that in her eyes doesn't happen which frustrates me it also frustrates me as she is constantly going at me and over reacting about the smallest little things I .e me leaving my sleepers in the living and she went nuts and threw them at me, I was almost out the door but I no it's not her fault and I love her dearly and don't want to leave.
Please if anyone can help me I am willing to listen please please please I don't want to be without the woman I love but I just don't no what to do.
