Please no rude comments. i suffer from bad panic attacks and it sets off my depression. I didn't choose this- but it seems like in every relationship I'm in it gets in the way and people normally judge what they dont understand.
That's really a wide open question. Some men won't because they classify all mental health issue as a bad thing. In many cases, panic attacks can be at least somewhat controlled. I have a close female friend who suffers from panic attacks. She is on a medicine that greatly reduces them to maybe one or two a month. She also suffers from depression, but her panic attacks don't cause it like yours do you. My friends husband is a wonderful support system for her. He has learned when he should do something to help and when to let her be by herself. Her kids also understand and allow Mom her space. See a doctor that undersatnds panic attacks and depression. A mental health professional would be the best for you. Many general practioners know a little bit, but not near enough to deal with a patient that has the problems you do. Having support from those around you that understand what you go through can help immensely. I wish I could help you more, but I don't know near enough to give you direct advice, just general. Just know there is help available for you. You just have to do the work to find it. I hope you do because I understand what you go through and it's so hard for you. Most people do not underestand that you can't just turn off a panic attack. It's as real to you as waking up in the morning is. You can do it as impossible as it may seem! You just have to believe help is available and persue it. As far as the men, try to help them understand and if they don't, they do you no good anyway. It hurts losing them, but you have to take care of you. I wish you the very best!
Anyways, if I am dating a girl with depression or anxiety, and she really is a great person, then I will be by her side while she recovers. I believe everyone needs a person by their side in the worst of times.
But if she actively pushes me away or floods me with her negativity, then I just might leave her. It has to be more good than bad for me to stay.
Since I work in the medical field, I have to ask if you've seen a physician about this yet? I am not a doctor myself, but just wondering how far you've pursued this from a medical point of view. Feel free to private message me if you'd like!
Personally I would, my ex fiancée had really bad anxiety and panic attacks. I remember doing what ever I could to help her. People have differnt things bogging them down and deal with it differently but in the end the heart wants what it wants and if that person really wants to be there, they should be willing to be there for you and help you through the depression and anxiety.
Those people you dated probably don't care to much. Maybe that's why they're judgy. I have anxiety too but its not as bad as it was years ago. I would date a girl like you lol I'd be more caring because I know what they're going through😊
