I have anxiety, which means I get panic attacks. If my boyfriend is around, he asks me what's wrong. When I tell him, you know what he says? "Don't panic." He tells me to just calm down and not care so much, or he says "Why don't you just not be so afraid?" He doesn't understand my anxiety at all, and I'm trying to educate him instead of just pouting that he doesn't understand. But it's honestly starting to irritate me that he thinks it's some kind of choice, like I can just decide to stop it. If I could do that, I wouldn't have anxiety.
