understand

  • How do I get the moderator to approve the groups I'm trying to make? I already tired to make 3

  • How to make others understand?

    I have a fiance, who is very understanding ect... but as a complete opposite to me he is a total adrenaline junkie and so as you can imagine has practically no fear (sometimes wonder if he is human!)
    I suffer anxierty, panic disorder, emetophobia and mild OCD. I am on a high dose of medication and regular therapys to help.
    I am improving and being with my fiance for 6 years now he has seen the really bad and the good.


    however when im having "good" times... i may be quiet or tierd and exhausted because my mind is always working overtime... you know how it is.
    he cannot understand (although has really tried to)
    he can see when i am bad.. (self harm, illness, general fast weight loss ect.) - i do not get bad anymore (touch wood.. 2 years now!)


    I dont know how i can make him understand how it can mentally drain you, and how it can make you upset or isolated (including very low libido)
    i have tried speaking with him.. for hours and he listens but it just cant "click" in his head.

    any tips or any way of helping would be much appriciated.. he really wants to understand, he wants to be able to tell how i am doing and how he should react to how i am feeling.

    thank you in advance.
