    Looking for some advice on this one...

    i've had anxiety issues in the past together with panic attacks but with psychological help and a lot of work on my part i've managed to improve a hell of a lot recently, to the point where the panic attacks are like a once monthly or less occurence, as opposed to pretty much all day every day.

    i met someone at uni and we've recently started seeing each other, we get on amazing and i care about her a lot. since ive been at uni i've been pretty much the person i used to be and despite having spent a lot of time with this girl there hasn't been a hint of my anxiety. however, it does still get me from time to time (rarely) and i'm wondering if it's worth letting her know about my 'past' instead of having to explain if something happens - would this scare her off? (tho i think we're past that scaring off stage) i wouldn't want it to seem like i'd been hiding something from her, because i haven't, but at the moment it's not an issue in my life.

    any advice appreciated

    It is something she needs to know, but i see your dilema. If your attacks are monthly she'll need to know. It's not fair if you have an attack with her there, she may think your dying.

    If she likes you, she shouldn't think too much of it- i.e. not finish you.
