My boyfriend and I have been together 4 months and my anxiety is ruining our relationship. When we have a slight clash of opinions/different viewpoints it triggers my anxiety and it will turn into a full blown argument. Or I will read into things, assume he is angry with me, and constantly seek reassurance, which in turn annoys him, and then we have an argument.
I am about to enter therapy to deal with my anxiety. My boyfriend seems worried about this. Note: I may be mind reading but I had my initial assessment on Monday and that night I went to see him and he seemed off/a little more quiet and different, didn't want to have sex etc. he then proceeded to ask what was talked about in the initial assessment and seemed worried when I said she asked questions like 'do you feel depressed?' I assume he is feeling worried because I am going to therapy because of our relationship.
I could ask him 'how do you feel about me going to therapy?' but since he doesn't appear to like discussing feelings (because when we have in the past it escalated) I assume he will say fine.
I guess what I am asking is, is there a way where I can reassure him that the therapy is to better myself and is not going to ruin our relationship?
