Letting my girlfriend know
« on: December 14, 2013, 07:39:03 PM »
Dropping the A bomb.

I do not really want to explain whats wrong to anyone as they do not understand and it can often make me feel stupid after trying to explain what anxiety is and what its like. However I feel the need to tell my girl friend as she knows partly of it but doesnt have the full picture, but if I was to do so I worry she may not understand and may think its odd.

Any experiences out there of telling a partner and any words of advice?

Not sure if you ever kept a journal or anything like that? That could be one way of letting her know just how bad you are. You can tell her you told her parts of it. Simple because you liked her so much that you thought by telling her the full story of the condition that it might scare her away. But you feel it is time for her to know the full extent of your condition. If you never kept a journal, maybe now would be a good time to put it all down in words on a piece of paper. Save you talking it out. Let her read it. If she has any questions at all, tell her to ask away. That you simply want her to know the real you. Because you really care for her.
