I had a pretty bad anxiety attack again yesterday relating to a group of youths hanging around close to where we live, who have been told to move on several times before and keep coming back. I tried to stay calm but actually I was shaking, pale, heart rate up etc. My partner saw this but just stayed on the computer. When he finally at least gave me a hug, he was trying to tell me it's all in my head and I will need to get used to reality - get thick-skinned. I saw them kids smerking right at me!
Why does my partner not at least do some research to understand what anxiety is??
If it's 'for better, for worse' and this is as good as it gets at 'for worse', well, good grief.
Can anyone relate?
