How is Psychology and Criminology going for you?
I often bounce around with what I REALLY want to do. I'm also attending college and I've went from Justice Studies to Pathology... now I really want to key in on Financing... I really like that type of math... but I hate regular math, weird right?
How is the medication working for you, and what type are you going on?
My boyfriend does not suffer from any mental health issues nor has any experience dealing with people who do, besides me. It is sometimes hard to talk to him and for him to understand why I am feeling a certain way.
Just the fact that he works hard to support what's going on in your life is better than him leaving you for it. Sounds like him and your dog are doing well to understand and do their best to understand, but it's not always easy as they are not wired the same way.... They don't view the picture the same way you do, and that is perfectly okay. We all have our different perceptions on things and if he doesn't have that hightened level of anxiety as you do, he's not going to understand what you're talking about. As if you're trying to show him a ghost.
That is among the biggest barriers that many anxious people struggle with is social interactions where others aren't understanding what's REALLY going on. My girlfriend didn't for the longest time... She thought I was making things up. But I really dumped it out, and connected all the dots... and until then, she understood me... She was there during my first psychiatrist visit, where I was diagnosed with a Social Anxiety. She's accepted that and has been there for me through thick and thin... but there are those days where I get a funny feeling and she just doesn't understand what I'm acting a certain way or what not.
It grows as you two are together.
