Please don’t try to make my opinion invalid by doing that. I have anxiety myself, I’m not someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Don’t try to up me with your mental status, it’s not a competition, and it doesn’t make you an expert on the subject. It just means, like myself, you have gone through similar things as the anon.
It’s not normal to be having that many. I don’t want them to think it is okay that it is happening so often. Or that it happens to everyone like this, and that they don’t have to do anything about it. It is not okay, this many attacks is a legitimate problem. Normal means typical, standard, or expected. They’re starting to get extreme and very frequent, which is not typical. I don’t want to brush off their panic attacks like they’re nothing. Doing so would be very against what I believe in morally. You and I both know they’re not nothing.
Thank you so much. And most aren't sever panic attacks. It is 1, maybe 2 really bad ones. With a couple minor ones throughout. Thanks so much for all the advice. I really have been trying the Skype thing, but right now with orientation and all, we can't find tons of time where we are both available at the same times. But nonetheless thank you so much. I really hope that she is willing to stick with this. And in general thanks for being there and helping :)
I just don’t want you to end up hurting your body from all those attacks! I know how rough anxiety can be, it can really hinder you from doing basic things after so long without help. I trust that you’ll take care of yourself. I’m just a worried old lady.
I’m sure once things settle down, you two will find time for each other. Share your schedules and see what you can do! Trust me, nothing is ever as bad as you think. Those are the words my mother always gives me before I do something scary. It will be okay.
Once you get this you have to publicly say 5 things you like about yourself and send this to ten of your favorite followers!
This is really cute!
Thanks for the message! :D
