I am not normally one who is shy around anyone as long as I'm laughing or joking around and having a good time. I am the life of the party but when it comes to any sort of serious situation. I freeze up. I don't know how to react or comfort people. The reason I'm posting this is lately my boyfriend is going through a really tough time. He has recently been injured in an automobile accident and is pretty much bed bound. He is also going thru allot of other things. His ex wife has not let him see his children in over a year and he's very upset about that. On top of that he already suffers from depression and severe anxiety. He is very fragile and I don't know how to handle it. I should be there for him when he needs me the most, but instead I try to find every reason I can to stay away. I'm even to the point I want to break up with him, all because this is causing me so much anxiety. I can't handle being around people or situations like this. I even find myself nervously laughing at things that are sad or depressing. I am also nervous around people who are generally serious people. Why is this?
