Soon afterwards, she announced she has exactly the same condition.

I struggle with socialising but I make myself go because I don’t want the anxiety to win.

But how can she have anxiety when she’s been out all day with a gaming friend?

It seems very convenient to me.

I’m wondering if it’s all simply a convenient excuse because she can’t be bothered to make the effort with me any more.

迪德说: Well done for facing your anxiety and pushing against it.

By facing your fears you will build your resilience and ensure anxiety does not completely take over your life.

Your girlfriend may be soaking up your worries and may genuinely be feeling some anxiety.

You would both benefit from counselling. There is also a great charity to help you called Anxiety UK (anxietyuk.org.uk, 03444 775 774).
