- Wedding: June 2012
I am new here but wanted to see if anyone else experienced the same symptoms as I did beofre and after the engagement.
I have been with my fiance for 6 years. Two months ago, we were watching TV and he said that he is planning to get engaged with me in a month and that he wants to have a big wedding because he has a large family. I do not have a good relationship with my parents but knew that I will have to invite them to my wedding. I was expecting to get engaged but not so soon. That night all of my simpoms started! My heart started pounding very fast!
I have been independent since age 15 and living on my own for the past 3 years. I have a very sucessful career and we never had any relationship issues or problems. We both met after highschool and he was my first boyfriend and I am his first girlfriend.
That night I could not sleep for some reason and I started experiencing stress and anxiety simptoms which I never experienced in my life before nor knew how they felt. I was Googling all night until I found out.
I felt scared, sad,confused, out of control, cried, could not sleep, ocassionally loss of appetite, worried about the wedding and life after the wedding, sometimes excited and happy….It has been the wost time of my life. Most of my simptoms dissapered after a month and after reading ” Emotionally Engaged” but I am now only left with upset stomach and diarrhea every morning after I wake up. As soon as I wake up I think:” My life will change after I get married” and I get diarrhea.
Also, my mom does not want to come to my wedding because of my dad and my dad does not want to come to my weeding since he is not organizing it. My sister stopped talking to me because I did not invite her on time to chose my wedding dress instead I invited my frieds, and my brother does not like my fiance and thinks that I should not marry him.
Has anyone been experiencing the same symptoms and is this going to go away after I get married?
Thanks you very much!!!
