    Hi there, firstly I just want to say I have been suffering too and the main cause of my anxiety attacks is because of my phobia of being sick. I haven't taken medicationfor it however IT DOES GET BETTER! I have been going counselling and that helps. Just retrain your mind. I get in bad moods and upset about it too but you must stay positive and stay calm, just think that you are going to be fine and think of things that will make you smile. Your partner should help you through it, explain exactly how you feel and hopefully they will begin to understand, don't stress too much.

    This is exactly what I'm going through and I'm only a teen. The therapy does help but it takes time. I know exactly how you feel as it was hard for my family to understand it but my counseller helped them see it in a way that explained it more. I find it hard too, expressing thoughts is difficult but you can get through it! I managed to get out more and feel more confident. Positive self talk really helps x
