I'm just venting really but it winds me up when people talk about someone having a serious anxiety problem when they have had a couple of panic attacks.

They have NO IDEA.

(Maybe this should go in AIBU!)

Yebbut it's not your place to underestimate or rank other peoples emotions.

Anxiety can manifest itself in different ways. I have an underlying anxiety problem which when I don't deal with it effectively leads to me suffering pretty serious depression.

I don't have panic attacks (or at least not what I see panic attacks as being) but my whole life can be affected.

I know, I just needed to get it off my chest.

I suffer with really bad anxiety but it rarely manifests itself into panic attacks.because of my anxiety i have been close to suicide and once nearly sectioned, the only reason i was not was due to my husband taking total control of everything

Obviuosly i have NO IDEA what true anxiety is like. angry
