For the last year or two, I've been having major alone issues. My boyfriend lives with me, and every time he leaves for more than a couple hours to go to his mom's or something, I get deeply depressed. Like I get really upset and cry a lot and can't sleep or anything.
Sometimes I'll pass out at abnormal hours compared to my usual and sleep for only a few hours then wake up crying for no apparent reason. Then I'm awake for the next couple days. My chest even hurts almost the whole time I'm alone. I've been like this since I started having difficulties with my last serious boyfriend in September of 2009, maybe even before that.
I want to know why I'm like this and if I should start seeking professional help. I can't handle it, and it sucks. I don't like this happening when it shouldn't. My friends and family and boyfriend shouldn't have to spend every second with me just so I'll be OK.
