How do you explain to your loved ones that your panic isn't their fault? I had a panic meltdown today and my fiancee kinda freaked out...she's never seen me gripped by fear before...and it was so hard to try and explain what was going on while in the midst of my panic. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Information, lots of information. Knowledge is power. You can't always get people to read what you want so sometimes if you find an article that you want to share with someone, print it out, and just leave it somewhere the person you want to read it will find it can work.

Here is a great article on helping someone having a panic attack: http://www.mdjunction.com/forums/panic-attacks-discussions/ general-support/1799764-how-to-help-someone-having-a-panic- attack
