Pre diagnosed GAD = Rocky relationship?
« on: December 10, 2013, 04:00:00 AM »
Before I was diagnosed with GAD I would either blow up at my husband for little things or freak out over little things. It even got to the point where I had seriously thought about divorce! We are doing fine right now and I love him so much! He has been there for me with everything and been supportive of me and my needs. I know this sounds cheesy and stuff but he is my best friend too! So do I just overreact sometimes or is this part of my GAD? I don't ever want to make a dumb decision due to my problems that would lead to me losing him! I've found that since being on meds I'm a lot calmer but still occasionally freak, usually it's crying bouts when I feel like I can't deal with something. Can GAD make you act like that?

Could be either, hard to say. Regardless, it would probably be helpful to see a counselor and discuss coping techniques

Coping techniques for dealing with GAD or the relationship? Either way if it gets rough again maybe I should talk with my psychiatrist.

Both. When you see a therapist you can bring them a list of goals or things you want to work on. That can include both the GAD in general and the way you have trouble handling stressors in the relationship. Yes, talking to your psychiatrist is a good idea, and if you do decide you want a therapist, they can refer you. Often there are therapists within the same group as the psych.
