Anxiety & Living Life With Others

Posted , 7 users are following.

Am I the only one, who gets irritated/mad and depressed, whilst having anxiety? Especially an anxiety attack. I was wondering if any of you get agitated with those around you during anxiety. Also, have any of you had trouble making others understand what it's like to have anxiety. I can't seem to make my boyfriend understand, especially. I'm depressed and crying every night, because i feel so weak. I wish I could make it all disappear.

    It's normal I think. I suffer with the anxiety that way. Trying to explain to the partners in your life don't always understand. With anxiety unfortunately you have to take it day by day. Don't know if this helps. Michelle

    It's because they don't understand the condition. Try not to let it stress you out, I know it's hard. Have you been advised about counselling or cbt therapy? Which may help you x

      I was planning on getting a refferal tomorrow, to see a therapist. I already know what place to go to, since I've been there when I was 10 and my mom went there, for a while... Today, the clinic I went to for my appointment with my GP, was closed. They have 2 different places where they see patients. The other one is 20 minute's away, and the clinic I go to, is only 5 minute's away. My mom didn't have any gas to go to the one that was 20 minute's away. The lady on the phone, the day before, scheduled me to go to that other clinic. rolleyes  Now I have an appointment tomorrow.

    Then there are times he doesn't really understand and we end up arguing and then i cry and feel down

    Hi kayla

    You have just described exactly how I feel. I suffer with anxiety and panic attacks oh and not forgetting depression. I try and explain to my boyfriend what it's like living in my head day to day, I tell him I have problems but he doesn't understand. I don't think people do unless they suffer also. Oh and yes I get agitated with people especially if I am having a bad day. I just can't help it. I've often thought I need to go to anger management, but I think it's just another sympton of my anxiety. It can put a strain on our relationship because when bad thoughts are going through my head and I'm over thinking things, I do get very snappy. I just can't help it. People don't understand x

    People who have never experienced what anxiety is ..will never understand...I know it sounds harsh but only you can help yourself. I basically told my mom and hubby to leave me alone..that once I was good I would let them know but not to hound me or stress me..because the only energy I have I save for my kids who need me and work...irs super hard...and many times you just want to give up and cry...but you need to make changes in your life..that will make you happy! smile
