Hey coco,

I know what you're going bf also suffers from anxiety and is on lexapro. We've only been together for 4 months, and I didn't know about his anxiety until we were together for about a month. He just abruptly stopped calling me one day and I didn't hear from him for a week. I thought our relationship was over but it turns out he was just going through a really bad anxiety attack and didn't leave his house. Once I realized what he was going through, he said he was afraid to tell me all this because he said he didn't want me to have to deal with his problems. But I care about him so much and I want to make sure to be there for him, which is what I'm sure you want to do for your boyfriend. :) I let him know that I'm there for him if he needs to talk or vent or whatever. We would go for long walks because that often relaxed him. Maybe your bf is afraid you'll be critical of what he's dealing with because it's not something that you suffer from. I've been reading through the anxiety boards to try to understand what he goes through and it helps a lot. He's been on lexapro for about 3 months now and it's worked really well for him (there are some days where he's having an off day and takes a xanax) but overall, things have been pretty good. I hope that you're bf will come around soon and know that you're there for him. :)
