I've had generalized anxiety disorder for well over 10 years, during that time medication never seemed to work, CBT
Worked some of the time, but again I seem to be going around in circles with it. I have good a days and bad, before this Corona I stayed in as I could not cope with crowded places.
Obviously it's still bad infact it's got lot worse in coping with things.

I have a male friend I liked him more than he liked me in that way, I tried hard to try to keep this GAD from him
But I eventually told him of my anxiety
He said to me I noticed something was wrong with you. That hurt 😂.
Since we have been friends like few months , I've had melt downs crying on phone to him. I've nearly lost him as a Friend but he still there. But I told him I like him in that way but he rejected me I was so hurt, but there again I've been a nightmare around him can I blame him.
I feel no guy will date me or have anything to do with me in a romantic way because of it.

I have had GAD, depression plus other mental health issues
for many, many years.
My husband says he doesn’t understand it but can see what it does.
He says it’s just part of me and accepts it.

That is the kind of person you need.
Be accepted for who and what you are.

Best Wishes, P

Same here! He gets frustrated sometimes but attended a therapy session with me and understands my disorder a bit more and has been more patient with me now.

Shaz - you will find someone that accepts all of you including your anxiety.
