I am not sure if anyone can help me but I thought I'd try.
I am 19, only take birth control.
My boyfriend and I have been together for 2.5+ years.
Earlier this year in April, I was reading over our old texts and realised that I didn't have that "warm and fuzzy fireworks" feeling. And it terrified me, which started to spiral out of control. I started getting thoughts like "do I love him?" And scary stuff like that.
It went away, but came back in full force in July.
My boyfriend and I are in a long distance (400 miles) relationship. He left for college the first time in 2013, and we've been together since.
I know I love my boyfriend. I think he is the most incredible guy in the world.
Am I just feeling down or something? Is this anxiety? Because when those thoughts jump in my head, my stomach drops and my heart pounds. Or am I just upset? I am not in college, and all of my friends have moved away, so I don't get the extreme social time that I used to.
I think that these changes have affected me, and I just need help getting those irrational thoughts to stop. I just really need someone to listen to me and tell me if I'm crazy or not, haha!
My family has no history of depression or anxiety.
Anxiety over relationship? Depression? I think?

Married and divorced twice still dating all i can say is relationships are a rollercoaster of emotions.You will discover things about yourself you didn't know but think positive.You are certainly not crazy,but have a good ability to talk about it but make sure you share with people you trust,good luck and still dating at 65 first date 1963 and still going strong.
I believe this was posted once before, you would be best served by a professional counselor, also, you're too young to have your heart so tied up in something that is so consuming.
There's so much life to be lived, learn to love yourself and grasp onto something that gives you a feeling of purpose, and, don't ever let that be another person. People are broken, relationships break, when you hit 25 or so you may be more prepared as by then you can be putting your energy into yourself, have a better grasp on who you are and be more prepared for relationships, which by then, if you spend these next years pursuing your full potential as an individual, will be in perspective.
Love changes and grows in different directions. That warm and fuzzy honeymoon phase doesn't last forever. Everyone has doubts now and then, it wouldn't be normal not to. With him being away you have more time to think. Think about where you'd be without him. If you can't imagine life without him, then you still love him.
