It's common to become overwhelmed and even preoccupied with a negative relationship. Of course, any stressor in our life, whether that be health or finances, to name a few, will often take the front stage. But do you find yourself obsessing over your relationship?

Additionally, perhaps you constantly feel uncertain about your partner's feelings about you, and this anxiety is contributing to stress in your life. It might be worth it to rule out Relationship OCD.
