I have had a very very very bad time in the last week with my anxiety/panic attacks. I've doubled up on my citalopram and I am on 20mg for the last 4 days. Today has been the most manageable day in 2 weeks but I'm feeling kind of numb. I guess it's the double dosage kicking in.
I know that for anyone that doesn't suffer from this it is hard to understand what we are going through, but sometimes for me reassuring words and arms make me feel a bit better. However, my partner doesn't understand it as he is a very rational person. For him it is more like what's wrong with you snap out of it which of course makes things far worse. I don't tend to talk or eat when I'm like this as I'm so wrapped up in my little anxiety bubble but the minute I mention the word anxiety or panic attacks I can see that he switches of anyway.
I feel really lonely as I don't talk to anyone about it.
How are your respective partners coping with your condition or how do you get them to understand better? He told me that when I am like this I bring him down too and I feel dreadful about it as this is the last thing I want.
