I've been reading A Bittersweet Potion series by Alchemia and Bugland and I've been enjoying it. My problem is that I can only handle so much angst. I have an anxiety disorder and, while I find that I can handle most angst within fic, there is a point were reading can become too anxiety provoking for me.

So, my question is, will the angst continue to get worse or will it let up any time soon?

I've gotten about halfway through the third installment. I did well for the first two but I've had to walk away from the third one several times. I really want to finish reading the series but I'm not sure if I can go through another 50K of

Snape pushing Harry away for his own good or constant fighting. I've just reached the part where Harry (accidentally?) casts the soul bond and he and Snape are fighting all the time. The authors have done such a great job building Harry's misery and the general feeling of dispair in this fic that I'm finding it difficult to get through.

Please don't take this as a criticism of the series. This is purely my mental health issue and I would appreciate any thoughts. Just to give you an idea of how much angst I can take, I read Unwell by socksfordobby and that was very difficult for me to get through. I tried to read Desiderium Intimum by Arielgobus but I couldn't push through the anxiety.
