I feel like my anxiety is just progressively getting worse. I really don't know what to do except try to cope with it by typing about it. I feel like every time i am feeling any sort of emotion it causes me to overthink. Overthinking is all i seem to do and i have no idea how to distract myself from it. I wish i could just stop but it feels like i am stuck in a vicious cycle where one thought leads to another and i am just left upset. My main worry at the moment is about my girlfriend who suffers from depression and anxiety like me. Due to circumstances we have had to make our relationship long distance and now she is on the opposite side of the world. I love her so much and i honestly don't know what i would do without her. I feel so distant from her and it just feels like i can't protect her, it's just so far outside of my control. I want to be there for her but the only way I can be is through words. I am just really not sure how i am meant to show her that i love her. I am mainly scared of her leaving me, from what my friends have told me and put into my head is that the long distance relationship is a bad idea. They don't understand how much i love her and how much she means to me, they think that she will leave me the first chance she gets and won't even tell me. I have a lot of trust in her but frankly it is really hard to block out their input because it means a lot to me. I feel like it is some sort or warning but i just don't want it to be, i love her and i don't want to breakup with her but i feel like i also want to protect myself. I am really hoping that it gets easier for me to live with the fact that I can't physically be with her but for right now it just scares me and makes me really nervous and anxious. In the past she has also tried to self harm, this scares me because i don't want her to try again. The experience I had with this situation was really terrible and I honestly didn't know how to cope with it, it just hurts so much seeing someone i love so much go through these things. I have tried my best to pinpoint the cause of my anxiety lately outside the basic things like school that are always sort of there. I just feel like it's getting worse and harder to cope, it just puts me in a depressive state which i hate being in.
