    My 22 year old daughter has anxiety & minor depression. This all started 2 months ago when she went on a camping trip with her boyfriend of 2 years & had a huge panic attack. Since then it has brought on anxiety & depression. She is on medication & seems a lot better with day to day tasks but is anxious when she has to spend time alone with her boyfriend. He is a lovey guy & is very caring & supportive but she is pushing him away. Any feedback/helpful suggestions to help her overcome this would be great

    Hi Moonta

    This sounds really tough for your daughter. If her boyfriend is a really nice guy he should understand, want her well and not put any pressure on her to spend time alone with him. It looks like she is doing everything she can to address this and it’s great she is more functional day to day . The pressure of a relationship may be too much for her at the moment and I think you need to follow her lead and support her with this.
    It’s tough on everyone when someone you care about is not traveling well.
