Default Girlfriend's anxiety has gotten worse

Recently my gfs anxiety has gotten even worse and she struggles to go out with her friends, so she feels like going somewhere with me is a big step. This means that atm I'm not seeing her at all and it really sucks. However I know it sucks more for her, so I'm not really sure what to do. I really want to see her but she says it's too much

Honestly, dealing with anxiety, she should really just try to break her comfort zone. I think a comfort zone is something to always be expanding. Especially when you have anxiety, you can only take small steps. I would hope that she could feel like testing the waters, getting outside, getting stronger etc. and have your support.

I think you gotta support her by respecting her space and fears. But you can also push her to be stronger. In my experience, staying away from the world only lets anxiety worsen.
But if she's not ready to try at this point, you just have to be patient and try again. I would be persistent but without going too far to help her.

I wouldn't bring up her anxiety. If she doesn't bring it up, maybe just leave it be.
Good luck with everything and you can only do so much to help someone but if they don't want help it is tricky.

She said that her therapist told her she needs to take little steps at a time, and she thinks that seeing me is a big step. It kinda upsets me that she isn't comfortable in my company. I'll try to support her into going out and doing things, but if seeing me is a big step then it's difficult.
