    I feel you, when some one tells me to calm down when I am like that it sucks. But, just focus on things around you by using your 5 senses

    Some ppl don’t understand anxiety if they don’t experience it in the same way; I’ve found that the right people will listen and never judge tho!! I used to be so concerned when I would be so anxious especially when there wasn’t a clear reason, but people will understand and be there to help :)

    Telling me to calm down works about as well as baptizing a cat. I sat my husband down and told him if he really wants to help. A: don't touch me B: just tell me its going to be ok and help me focus on his breathing so i can match it. That really helped him understand a lot better.
