Ok so, I'm not sure if this belongs in anxiety or in depression, so I'll post it in both. I've had months where I am fine, my normal self, etc. But right now I am going through a bout of anxiety/depression that has lasted almost 4 months so far. These bouts include CONSTANT anxiety, nervousness, early morning awakenings, depression, suicidal thoughts due to fear of not getting better again...the whole nine yards. My problem is that I started hanging out with this guy before this all came back and I was stable. I continued to hang out with him from time to time, even after this all hit me out of no where, but now I'm getting freaked out. I like him a lot and would love to just say "hey, I want to be with you," but I just can't because I don't want to put someone through what I'm dealing with right now...and I don't feel like myself! Sure I could say, I'm going through bad times right now, but I have this fear that I won't get better, or that dating someone will make it worse. Anyone have any advice or encouragement? Please no scary stories, I'm already scared enough :-(
