After he leaves, I cry. Why do I feel alone?
Asked Jul 3, 2012, 10:37 PM
I'm 25. I've lived with someone or family for about 24 years now. For the last 7 months or so I've been living on my own. I get very bad anxiety when I'm away from home or my boyfriend for too long. My boyfriend was sleeping over every night at first, then every other day and now it's maybe once a week. I want to ask him to move in with me, but I love in an unsuitable living space for his dog. It would be unfair. Recently, because of my new job I work later and he works early. So now I don't get to see him every night. The nights he does come over and then goes home, I cry. I can't help it. I'm just overwhelmed with loneliness and sadness. How can I make this stop? I even cry when he's not able to come over because he's exhausted from work. He wants us to live together, but I have to get a better paying job so we can move into a house. I'm trying, but what can I do about these feelings until then? I get so depressed and feel lost. Friends nor family make me feel better. My heart is going to explode.
Please do not reply if you have a smartass comment. Do not reply comments pertaining to my boyfriend either. I need something for real about my crying, feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Thank you
