Default Re: Panic attacks again

Panic attacks are caused by large amounts of anxiety. I usually have specific triggers, when I'm faced with one of my phobias usually. I get them a lot when I'm out in public with a lot of people, when I'm in an aeroplane, etc. What I recommend is catching the anxiety at its source, figure out what it is that's making you anxious and either removing that or learning to deal/cope when you're exposed to it (deep breaths, remove yourself from the situation, etc.) I have an anxiety workbook that I go through sometimes. Also, if your anxiety is really overpowering, meds are good to look into.

Like Kathy said, you have to get him to understand that you have some things you need to work out, that you can't work out alone. I recommend showing him a third-party source, like an informational website. That's how I got my parents on my side about my self-harm. Sometimes, people need an unbiased and informative outer source so they can have more insight beyond just their perspective and the description of your perspective.

And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
