Reply to "my girlfriend has seperation anxiety disorder"

Hi FRED, 
Hope you are doing fine.  Even though  it is a late reply, I need to add something which might help you. Adult separation anxiety is a type of disorder which may cause serious problems like a chemical imbalance in the brain and depression. The risk increases if the patient is a woman. There are some anti-anxiety medications and therapies like CBT or individual therapy, which may benefit separation anxiety. My friend also had a similar problem and got CBT treatment from a mental health clinic in Toronto. He is doing fine now. Relaxation strategies like yoga and meditation will also help her. Tell her to practice to be alone for some time (a couple of days). This is a great exercise to get out of ASA. Make her feel that she is not alone and support her by all means. If your love is strong, then no one can separate your girlfriend from you. Therapists will always try to treat the disorder, they won't try to separate you from her. Don't be scared.
