So my boyfriend and I are happy together, but I can't seem to get over picking out the smallest things and turning them into huge deals. It just seems as though I complain all the time about every small thing! Here are a few examples...I mean anything that I could possible think of that could go wrong is going on in my head constantly. Anything! I am paranoid about of things that a lot of people think are quite annoying. I do believe I have anxiety issues. I can't seem to relax and just let life happen...I am too busy thinking about what could happen and picking out the bad things I see rather than the good things I should be seeing in everything. I have been to the doctor to see if I have a thyroid issue, but everything is fine. My blood pressure and resting heart rate is normal. I do not think I have any physical issues. I think it is all in my head, because that is what I have heard from other people. Sometimes I find myself looking down at my phone at least 50 times within the hour to see if my boyfriend texted me knowing that he is busy, but it still bothers me to see myself so anxious about a this. I do feel as though I have acute OCD sometimes, but that could just be all in my head at times. I just feel paranoid all the time about the smallest things and I can't seem to just relax and take it easy. I feel as though I have gotten to the point of complaining all the time and griping at everyone for no reason. I have gotten to the point of being paranoid about everything in my relationship although everything is fine. I am easily annoyed and irritated with everyone around me for the smallest things. My boyfriend jokes around as much as he always have, and I have never been annoyed, but for some reason an am giving him so much grief lately, and am starting to pick on him for that, and then I turn around and say everything is my fault...and cause him to be concerned of me. I start to blame myself for everything I feel that I cause wrong, and I feel a little bipolar at times...I do not know what it is, but I have always felt that I have always lived an abnormal life and will continue to do so. Is that not a strange thought as well? What do you guys think? I know that it is mental, but what do I do about all of this?

Not an expert, but your thoughts and actions, do sound like anxiety, and l dont think they sound that abnormal, many people think and feel the same, be it irritation at others, closest to us usually, but also thinking were the problem and to blame, thinking our life character,abnormal, as if alien, l dont think it sounds like bipolar, where actual behaviour is more extreme, rather than thoughts.But think you do need someone to talk to, for support and help, as it could affect your relationship with your partner, a touch of ocd can go along with anxiety. Maybe talking to, and getting support from a therapist will help you, or at least make things clearer to you.

  • Im no expert either but agree with what the previous poster has said. Severe anxiety issue.. you need to talk to someone professional about this eg counsellor or psychologist and may need some meds for it. See a therapist before it affects your relationship.
