That sounds like a difficult cycle, you shut down to avoid upsetting anyone and then feel you've upset them by shutting down. Always start by just being you, whatever that is :)

He has had health anxiety before, so I know he understands it to some extent. But I don’t think he really understands what it’s like to have it everyday. It wears you down physically and mentally.

I did try and talk to him about us both doing therapy. I thought it would help but he doesn’t want to do it. He hasn’t been involved in any appointments with the psychiatrist or therapist. It makes me feel like I am on my own sometimes.

I can see why you would feel on your own but you're not, and I really hope that one day soon he'll rethink the idea of going with you because I think it's a great one

I hope he will reconsider the idea of therapy. I think it would help our relationship. I’m getting very sleepy 😴. Which is a good for me. My sleep is horrible. Hope to talk to you again💛 Goodnight.

Hey KitKat. I hope your doing ok.... I know what it’s like. I do. And all I can do is sympathize with you and validate your feelings are real and hurt. But you do not have to act on them..... you are doing good by coming on here and posting about the urge to self harm and not self harm..... your doing great
