    Adult Separation Anxiety Disorder

    HiThis is the first time I have really put into words the issues I have so bear with me. I have been with my wife for 12 years now and I have always had an issue whenever she goes on a night out or if I can't check where she is and that she is ok, whenever she goes on a night out I don't tend to sleep and tend to set a time in my head when I think she will be home by and spend the night working...

    Does she have Separation Anxiety?

    Hello all,Like many searching for answers to life's biggest and smallest problems, I’ve turned to the internet for assistance. After scouring through search engines, articles, and "self-help" pages I'm left with more questions than answers. I'll try to keep it short and to the point, although I know it takes time to work things out and things like this should not be rushed. My girlfriend and I...

    Needed to find a support group.

    hello all! Lately my anxiety and panic attacks have been eating away at me. My boyfriend and I have been dating a little over two and a half years and I've always kind of clung to him. But over the past year it has been nearly impossible for me to leave him unless I am going to be with my immediate family, or my closest friend. Everyday before we both go to work (we live together and have for two...

    Hes left me because of my anxiety!!

    My boyfriend broke up with me a few weeks ago and I have taken it very hard as he dumped me because of my anxiety. He says he needs space and because I just want him back i kept pestering him to give me an answer, when he gets annoyed he'll get very angry and start saying we are over for good. Three weeks before we broke up we booked our first holiday together. The day he broke up with me we were...

    I think this is my issue

    I became extremely depressed 1-1/2 years ago when my son moved out. It was very sudden for me. It's not that he wasn't old enough, etc. but he had never talked about it and he and his father did not tell me of his plans. It was supposedly so that he could tell me all of his plans--where he was going to live, with whom, how he would support himself since he was still in college but instead...

    All alone and no one to talk to

    I'm 29 and I was with my fiance for 5 years, I used to postpone the wedding due to the fact that I suspected that he was cheating, but could not find any hard evidence. I sort of prepared myself for this day and ended up in hospital for 3 weeks after a second retrenchment and a third one in sight. I am very goal driven but soft hearted.I found all the evidence one night on his laptop - I stopped...

    Hi all

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to find out a bit more on separation anxiety. A bit about my son.. He is 6 years old, and at the start of this year, his father stole him and his sister from me. I use the word stole, because that's basically what he did. We have been separated for almost 4 years now, and he decides now, that I am an unfit mother, simply because he wants to get back at me for moving on...

    Hi all. I'm new here. Joined tonight because I'm going through a bit of a rough spot. I am experiencing some extreme separation anxiety from my boyfriend. To give some history - I was in an abusive relationship where my husband also cheated for years. That ended over a year ago and I have been involved with my boyfriend for six months or so. To say I have trust issues is an understatement. He is...

    Separation Anxiety

    I'm not sure if I have separation anxiety or just anxiety itself. My ex BF and I broke up 7 months ago and have been recently hanging out again. We are willing to just see where things go. He is leaving for deer hunting today and I won't see him for close to a week. I was ok when we said goodbye today but now I'm feeling anxious and like I want to text him to see how he's doing. However, I don't...
