I am in a happy and generally successful relationship. Recently there have been bumps. I am having a harder time controlling my thoughts and anxiety and often time things pile on and I have these anxiety attacks that I can’t control at all and I fear I’m hurting him. He is so good to me and I can’t help but feel like he should be better with someone else who won’t cause him as much stress. We are engaged to be married and I’m afraid he’s gonna have enough of me one day and leave because he can’t physically take me anymore…

I feel you! Once I moved in with my boyfriend I started getting these same thoughts

I 100% feel. We have been engaged for a while now, and we are moving in together soon, and I’ve been ruminating on this a bit.

Two things. 1) What if he had OCD and was asking you to still love him. Would you? Of course you would still love and support him. 2) You can improve and you will improve with time. My OCD was hardcore when I was young. Now, at 50, it has faded off quite a bit. If you guys get married, he will be with you in the future, when you may also improve. Your future can inspire you to use your tools and methods for meeting the challenge of your OCD.
