I've struggled with a phobia my entire life. It obviously causes a lot of anxiety and it causes a lot of issues between me and my boyfriend. I've done a lot of therapy to try and conquer it but to no avail so far. My boyfriend is so supportive and so patient but I feel how it's taking a toll on him as well. We've been together for 5 years and I love him more than anyone else in the world, but I feel bad for being his girlfriend. My phobia might keep me from ever giving him children too which is something I know he really wants. It keeps me from going out and being social a lot too. I feel like he deserves so much better than this. He says he wants to be with me and that he'd never leave me but I feel so selfish for keeping him in a relationship with me and putting him through all of this that I'm considering leaving him so that he can live the life he deserves. Even if it means I lose him forever. What would you do?
I feel bad for putting my boyfriend through my phobia. Should I let him go?

If he said he wants to be with you, knowing your phobia and what you go through, supporting you for the past 5 years, why would you want to ruin that? His love towards you means more than what the world has to offer from meaningless fun. Thank him for being there through the tough times, show him appreciation. From the sounds of it, he's a keeper. Hard to find these days1

He's with you for a reason don't go assuming his feelings and making rash decisions. If all you want is to leave don't use him as an excuse or justification to leave.0
