My Dad will do anything for me. Drive me wherever whenever. I rarely ask him for help. I just drive and have panic attacks. I do not want to burden him with my problems. I am a grown man with a family and need to be as independent as possible for my own sanity and self esteem. I am blessed to have him and it helps knowing he is there when I really need him but it is nearly impossible to ask for help. He has to pry it out of me. I don't understand how a parent can judge their child and worse put them down. My Dad has no idea how I feel, no understanding of what I am going through, and he does not judge me. My Dad has taught me some very good lessons about what it is to be good father and person. Just know that we can learn to be more tolerant and help someone else based on our own experiences. Hang in there.

Yes I go through the same thing with my mother, she tells me to quit being dramatic and take my crazy pills. So I had to decide that it's not worth telling my mother what I am going through because I feel like a piece of crap once she reacts to what I tell her is going on with me. This site is great for especially when you feel like you have no one someone on here will have answers to your questions and you will have answers to other people. I suggest letting it outin here if you feel safe to do so but I know exactly where you are coming from. On here you aren't alone.

I have a lot of guilt over it myself because I do not drive due to my anxiety and feel bad that my father drives me to work everyday. My Dad is very understanding of me though he told me I was a good driver and tried to help me conquer my fear and I feel like I've let him down and that I'm a failure. His dream was for me to get a college education but I couldn't do it. My Mom on the other hand is a care free optimistic person who doesn't understand me and said I do it for attention that I'm lacking somewhere.

My husband will get angry with me when I have them. I've asked him to sit with me or take me to the ER when the palpitations are overwhelmingn. He was too into his computer games. One time I sad please sit with me please and he said I'm going to sit right here(at the computer playing games). He says I'm always fine so he has a point but he can be cruel. My kids treat me a little better but they follow his lead sometimes.
