Hi!! 6 months ago I made the decision to get off anxiety medication. I felt ready, life was good! A few weeks after my last dosage, I developed diarrhea. Long story short and after a colonoscopy a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis. Im taking medication which is helping but with the stress of going through this, working from home a year now (due to covid) and not being medicated for anxiety, my relationship with my boyfriend isn't good. He actually broke up with me yesterday because he just can't handle my behavior, words and attitude toward him. He says that I'm disrespectful, untrustworthy of him and darn right rude. I agree, I have been but I've been working hard to deal with do many new issues/life situations and I'm just exhausted. I did tell him yesterday that I'm going to work harder at being a better human toward him. After a long discussion, we were able to put a bandaid on the relationship and take it day by day. I'm scared that I'll hurt him again and then I'll end up alone. He's my world, my love and all that I've ever wanted.
That's why I'm here, I need support, I need people to talk to, I need to connect with people that are in the same boat as myself.
Do any of you have relationship problems because of anxiety? Do you ever lash out at him for no reason because you're feeling anxious?
I'm so glad to be on here. I hope we all can find peace and help to live better lives.

I really don't understand myself sometimes. I go from perfectly fine and laughing to feeling like a complete failure. Even though I know that having to have multiple sessions for a tattoo, sleeping through an interveiw, and being behind in some classes, really isn't that deep. But it just keeps swirling around into this gross mess of thoughts. I know people have their limitations, but I can't...
