Anxiety is fueling insane jealousy

I find it hard to live with my anxiety. I find it hard to breathe.

So...there's this guy I like. Joe, let's call him. So Joe and I hang out a lot as friend.

I have feelings for him, but I am not in a place where I am ready to tell him and I don't think it's a good idea for me to be in a relationship right now. My anxiety has been really awful and I think it would just be bad. SO I'm trying to just view him as a friend and focus on me.

Trouble is, I'm insanely jealous. I KNOW he's not my boyfriend. I know he doesn't know about my feelings and I cannot control him.

I am terrified NOT to tell him and I'm afraid he will find somebody else.

But I am terrified to tell him because I really am not in a good place, mentally, and I couldn't handle it if he turned me down.

How can I get rid of jealousy? I know it's irrational but that doesn't help my heart stop hurting.

You should tell him, if you're having this much trouble with anxiety, chances are it's medical and it's not just going to go away when it's convenient. This mean there is a chance this guy will find someone else. You should seek some form of help, I know it's hard to reach out because of the stigma of mental illness, but you should do this for yourself.

There are professionals, who know how your brain works better than yourself, and can identify patterns and find ways for you to manage your anxiety. I think you're trying to hard to manage this all by yourself. And alot of people deal with these kinds of issues, celebrities, people of all lines of work. Don't feel bad about it.

As far as Joe, the longer you wait to tell him the higher the chance of him finding someone else. If he's you're friend he should be understanding about your anxiety, and like you for who you are(if he ends up feeling the same).

falling in love is great, until you hit your head on the steel ground.

You should just tell him. Maybe some of the anxiety is because of not knowing his reaction.
