I’ve been dating my girlfriend for about a month, and we get along great. But, she has anxiety, and it’s really difficult to watch her go through so much stress. Even the smallest things make her stressed. Things that most people give no thought about make her nervous, and I have had to get used to that and try to understand it. If she has a project for work, she’s a bundle of nerves. Going to the grocery store to pick up some items puts her on edge. I want to be able to help her, but I’m not sure how to go about it. This is something entirely new to me, and I’m willing to try to help because I care about her.
It sounds like you are a great boyfriend and support system for your girlfriend! Continue to show her that support. Does she treat her anxiety? Encourage her to make an appointment with a counselor, as therapy can help her deal with and better manage her anxiety. Don’t pressure her into anything, but bring up the idea and see how she feels about it. Additionally, make it clear that you’re there to help her in any way that you can.
