Show it anyway

Easily, fear.

i assume it's the first time he said it, but that's just me.

Maybe I just don't understand panic attacks in their entirety.

Well, did you say it back afterwards?

The fear and anxiety becomes so intense that you tend to feel like the world is collapsing on you or you're having a heart attack. It's really scary and upsetting. Obviously the fear of love and vulnerability has caused this. I hope it works out, OP

Love hurts ;)

1- because she's a girl? Duh

I've only had one panic attack and I had mine for no reason whatsoever; I was just calmly watching TV when mine struck. It's not a barrel of laughs either; it made me feel very unwell for three months afterwards and I was constantly on edge. A lot of people think panic attacks are controllable, but they're not; they're a very horrible experience and I wouldn't wish them upon anyone.

Anything can cause a panic attack if your case is severe enough.

Boom goes the dynamite

How does being a girl have anything to do with it?

53- Just like your face! Boom.............. goes the dynamite. I'm cool.

Instead of saying it back, I had a panic attack that rhymes ;)

People need to stop saying they love each other. Seems like every time someone does, it ends up on FML.

I love you, Shrooms, and I can't wait to see your fml, boo. :)

What's wrong with u!?F his life

62- I woulda done that too. :P

I'm just curious if it was because she was excited or scared :P

Everyone is saying its fear ...???? Ever thought someone could be overwhelmed by it? Could have been the opposite

According to freshmen health books panic attacks cause fear without warning and sometimes for no reason.

Panic attacks are caused when your emotional state exceeds your ability to cope with that emotion.The initial emotion can be fear or a seemingly unrelated emotion that yet triggers fear, e.g., love, joy or excitement.

I used to have terrible commitment issues, (as well as moderate anxiety I cope with to this day), and even hearing my partner's best friend tell me that my partner loved me triggered a panic attack. I had to breathe into a bag. Not as uncommon as the world would think! Though definitely quite embarrasing..

Wow, wait till he proposes

Was he offended?

You'd say so by that reaction

The FML doesn't say anything about her boyfriend's reaction. But I'd have to guess he might be upset and think he dropped the word too soon or she wasn't ready.

I meant by the GIRLFRIENDS reaction. Obviouslly you'd be offended if you gave your girl a panic attack from telling her you love her !

LOL ^ ye he was offended :(

That's completely normal. Did you say it back after?

Normal to panic when somebody loves you? I think not

Obviously not. Did you miss the "instead of" part?

GoW_Chick 14

Panic attacks are not normal, and they suck, it feels like the whole world is crumbling around you, and you can't stop it from happening, or another way to explain it is you feel like a fish out of water.

"And number four swoops in for the phail!" It said "instead of"! Geez.

I think Mel is saying that it is normal to be very excited/nervous when someone tells you they love you for the first time. The nerves got to OP and she freaked out. Unfortunately, instead of just getting sweaty palms and shaky hands OP had a panic attack.

I agree (: it's normal! Just explain to him and he will understand.

Love is suffocating, especially when your lover strangles people for fun.

I wonder what was going thru his head. He was probably like what the fucks going on.

What's up with everyone having a panic attack these days?

Life: they fail at it.

Could have been worse, now he can think that he took your breath away
