I do not have an anxiety order but I have been experiencing very difficult times with my partner who does. I feel emotionally abused whenever he's having an anxiety attack. I am the cause of his anxiety, it seems. It starts out as something he feels bad about, I listen, I stay calm for him but he pushes and prompts until I breakdown, it seems. And then he reveals that it's his anxiety. After all of the arguments, I say that everything will be fine and that everything is my fault and is on me. It feels very lonely because I know that I cannot turn to him for comfort because he's need my comfort and I have to be there for him. I've been reading a lot on how to be there and take care of someone with anxiety but it doesn't say anywhere how to handle someone with anxiety when you're the cause. I'm afraid that it's taking a toll on our relationship and I don't want it to go down the drain. Help
