I was just wondering this myself. Op's lately are some majorly uptight and worried people. Relax, life is going to kill you anyhow, it's just a matter of time. No need to get uptight about it.

Having a panic attack has nothing to do with being "uptight" or a "drama queen". Having panic attacks is a disorder, and I don't know anyone who would choose this. You guys should have a little bit more sympathy for those who suffer from this, panic attacks are one of the worst feelings in the world.

There is a disproportionate number of fmls having to do with anxiety/panic attacks, but it's because people are a lot more open about the issues their anxiety causes, and their fmls are more likely to get published because a lot of people can relate. The thing with anxiety is that while it is an actual medical condition, a lot of people (that I've met anyway) don't seem to treat it as such. For example, if you have asthma, you will make sure you're prepared for an asthma attack by either avoiding situations causing one or by carrying an inhaler. I've met quite a few people who claim to have anxiety, but refuse to actually treat it and then expect everyone else to walk to eggshells around them in order to avoid an attack. Meanwhile, I spent years taking control of my own anxiety through therapy, medication and other methods and can now sense a panic attack coming o,n and generally prevent or lessen the impact. But that's just my opinion, take it or leave it.

In case you go to a concert with your boyfriend/girlfriend, they have a panic attack halfway through and you end up meeting their parents for the first time drunk? That's a weird reason not to drink man.
