I am just saying hello. Even though I have posted before.
Have suffered with MH for many years. I have been fine for quite some time now but last night was seized panic. I had my ex partner here with me, it wasnt anything to do with that. I was just sitting here and I suddenly started thinking I couldnt breathe properly - I dont know if I was overbreathing without knowing it. But this went on all night.
I wanted to phone my local support team just to say how I was feeling, just in a state of panic. I didnt tell my ex how I was feeling because I didnt want him fussing. I know maybe I should speak out but I cant. I hate being in an anxiety state but I find keeping it to myself makes it easier to deal with than having to deal with it and others fussing about. About others fussing leaves me in a stressed situation.
I know this is nothing compared to what others suffer and believe me I have been very low in the past, but when I havent had a panic attack for a long time when I do have one it knocks me sideways completely.
Thanks

Hi GG - hope you're feeling better now. I find it worse trying to deal with anxiety if someone else is there. It makes me feel like I have to breathe for them too. Nice to see you.

That is exactly how I feel. Like to have to breathe for others as well as myself. I always feel like I have to protect people from my anxiety, while they have no problem with dumping their anxiety on me.
