@stace0616:  Sending a hug your way!


I feel this way sometimes myself, I am a type A personality that loves to have everything planned to the tee and worries constantly.


I know where you’re coming from when you say you’re clinging too much to your fiance. This is what I do while he’s out doing his own thing. I journal. I write down 5 things I’m grateful for that day, so that positivity carries on with me all day. Just keep your chin up. Take a deep breath!

I know this may be difficult given your financial situation, but go see a professional.  There’s a difference between being down and frustrated at your job and being overwhelmed by it.  When you can’t control the crying, you’re suffocating your fiance and you feel like you’re drowning, that’s a big red flashing sign saying ‘seek professional help’.  Doesn’t mean you have to be on meds, you might just need better coping mechanisms.  There’s no shame, there’s nothing bad about asking for help.  But when it’s something you both struggle with, that means you have to stay on top of it.  Depression’s a nasty thing, and it’s starting to affect him too, and that’s not fair to him.  You can get through this, and you’ll be able to get married without having all of this on your shoulders.
