Major panic attack

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've just split up with partner today, he was my rock, but far too pushy and I couldn't handle this side of him. The worst feeling is the shock and panic I feel without him. I was dependant on him and didn't realise how much. My legs feel like they've gone to jelly and I am very anxious about coping with these physical reactions.  Has anyone got any advice to manage this huge anxiety?

    As a woman having a relationship with someone pushy i totally relate. Is he the reason why your anxiety begun? Have you ever thought about it? Are you with him for a long time? I ll tell you one thing. Having a pushy partner is like being under a lake and breathing through a straw. Now someone closed the air and you managed to get out of the lake. Every break up takes time to heal. It will have grief and pain. But it will be temporary for some months. Pressure will be forever.. You got the courage to do it. I wish i will get it too. How was he pushy?

      He used emotional blackmail if he couldn't get his own way. I have had some space and feel I need a longer break.  He wants to talk, but he won't compromise and I always get upset by this. Yes it has felt so much like you said.  Thanks for helping me see the light.

       I met up with an old friend who also has relationship problems and we had a long walk.. My panic has subsided for the moment. I just need to relax and not to be in confrontational situations all the time.

      Thanks for your concern.

      Do not go back because you are anxious. It takes time to heal. You did the right thing and time will heal leaving him. Theres someone better out there for you. You would get anxious either way, he wasnt really your rock he was there and causing you distress. Better to see friends and make new friends. He will probably be persistent for a bit, pushy people are like that. Abusive are very like that first , then act sad and apologenic then get cruel. Ignore it all. You will realize in a few months you made the best choice ever, anxiety can be hard at times to manage but way better then dealing with it and feeling trapped. Here you get to heal. If it gets a bit too rough fo see your doctor and im sure he can give you something to help you get through this.you havent mentioned if you live with your parents or alone. If yiu are aline you can always have a friend stay over or go see some family for a bit. Co deoendency would be the absolute worst reason to be with a person.
