I really do not want to see a "psychologist" or anybody like that about this. I just want some advice on where I need to go. It's basically unrequited love. It's lasted 3 years. It's getting worse. I think about her every single minute, I try my best to forget her but nothing works. Even going out with friends, doing other "happy" and "take your mind off" stuff. It's almost like Obsession. It's a mixture of unrequited and obsessive love I manipulate others and circumstances just to look good in front of her. That is always me sole aim. In circumstances in which she is not present, I'm a normal happy guy but when she is near me, I become so unbelievably self-conscious. I am conscious of my every move and worried anything I do might embarass myself in front of her. Hence, my consideration to use Prozac/Lexapro in the other thread. Is there any other way to get rid of these growing and potentially life-consuming feelings? Quote:- Unrequited love is like a cancer, it eats your insides up and makes you feel depressed, lost and suicidal. You experience feelings of sadness, hopelessness and pain everyday/night. Aside from loosing sleep, you also loose interest in things you like doing, hobbies, working out etc. I think you just loose interest in life.
