This is the first time I've done this but I'm quite desperate for advice on what to do. The other night I had a panic attack which was the first time it's happened to me. I've struggled for many years with hypochondria, and general anxiety but it's generally always been manageable. I feel like at the moment I'm out of control though. I worry about everything, and fear the worst from every situation (or imagined situations). I swing from being ok and stable one minute, to crying or trying to stop myself panicking in the next. I get angry so easily with my partner and can barely control it. He is always been patient with me, but this is slowly waning, and I know he doesn't want to have to deal with this stuff on a daily basis anymore but I just need a lot of his help and support at the moment. I feel like he's pulling back but I don't know how to stop feeling like this. I've started seeing a counsellor which has been helpful. She told me to try and step outside of myself when I start to panic or get angry and look at what's happening in a detached way, to figure out how to deal with it. I just don't seem to be able to do this yet. I'm trying really hard because I don't want to feel like this, and I don't want to wear my partner down. I keep reading about what to do for anxiety but I'm just really scared all the time. I've had a lot of changes in my life over the last year and I've never dealt particularly well with change. If anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it so much.
