Hey there. The last two weeks I have suddenly started getting tight feelings in my chest all the time, like 'bad butterflies' - even though there is no apparant reason for it. It makes me worry about things important in my life; my job, my band, my girlfriend, but mostly my girlfriend. For no reason I have started to worry she will want to leave me and stuff like that, even though we've been together 6 months, and nothing's changed - she's still the same lovely caring person. It happened with my ex girlfriends too though - for the early stages of the relationship, everything was fine and I had confidence, but as it drew out I was constantly anxious all the time, which in the end made me anrgy with them and get too jealous, thus losing them. With my ex I had reason to feel jealous, but with my current girl I shouldn't at all because she is so lovely. I need to know 1. what it actually is that i have, and 2. how to control it. I do not want to feel like this, or lose my girlfriend.Thanks,sadmuso :S
Think I have an anxiety disorder :S
as for the worrying
i dont have cable so one day i was flippin through the channel and i landed on one of those religious ramblings and the guy was telling a story about a couple who the guy was always worrying the wife would die eventually and what he would do and everything and then one day she got some rare disease and died 6 months later. Not trying to give you ideas of stuff to worry about but theres no point in worrying about stuff like that. If shit happens then you will have time to worry about it then.
Just remember that, unless you have some reason to worry, its perfectly plausible that things will work out fine. There is no automatic troubles that come out of thin air. They all start for a reason.
Ex. You cheat on her she finds out, there's trouble.
If you know shes not happy with you then there could be trouble there.
if you have suspicions that she might not be happy then you should try to change it or make sure or whatever. and if she seems happy then the only way she wouldnt be is if she's faking it. And you can probly find out if she's faking it some way or another.
It might be Generalised Anxiety Disorder.
