I am currently in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend and my depression and anxiety play hell on me and I'm always overthinking things when I don't hear from him. He works 3rd shift and I work a days at Walmart, I'm able to out in for a transfer to the Walmart in the city my boyfriend lives, but at the moment I can't afford to move and no transportation. We try to talk every day but sometimes it's hard and that's when I start to feel overwhelmed and start thinking negative. We do the best we can in our situation and he knows it's not easy for me, I have my dog for the emotional support I need when my boyfriend isnt hear and it has helped some with my depression and anxiety.
