Unhappy Constant fear of abandonment by my FPs

I have a constant fear of my FPs leaving me. It's extremely consistent. I have to check with them everyday if they like me, if they don't like me, if they're going to leave me... I can never be at peace with the idea that they would never leave me, I have to be on guard all the time. If they give me the slightest hint that they're leaving/not available in the moment, I spiral into a major depressive episode or have an anxiety attack, or do something reckless to feel better. Do yall have any advice to overcome my insecurity of others' perception of me and the idea that they're leaving me? Thanks!

You described perfectly what this disorder about.
I watched a video by Dr Fox about favourite persons. Maybe it can be of help.
