I have a close friend who suffers from anxiety from time to time. In this book, Helping Someone with an Anxiety Disorder, I will share with you some very important information on how to deal with the mood swings that close friends, family members or spouses may encounter while interacting with someone who battles with anxiety.
Don't lose yourself by getting overly focused on the moods and actions of the person you love and care about who is suffering with anxiety issues. You must not get so intertwined with the other person that your life revolves around everything he or she does.
If you have regular interactions with the person suffering from panic and anxiety attacks, consider seeking professional help for yourself. One of the things that has helped me tremendously is being involved in support group meetings that are centered on learning relationship skills. One of my favorite 12-step groups is designed to help people who are codependent.
Take great care of yourself. Schedule plenty of time away from your friend or relative. Periodically be selfish with your time with the intent of enjoying your life apart from the person who is ill with anxiety. I've found that being involved in church, exercising on a regular basis, and investing time in my hobbies has really helped me not get too intertwined in my friend's illness.
I have acquired a tremendous amount of wisdom that is shared in this book on how to cope with someone who suffers with anxiety.

Her voice is nice, however I feel the recording quality could be improved slightly. While it was perfectly listenable, the words just had a slight buzz occasionally. This is just a suggestion, it's fine to listen to.
Some really solid and practical advice here. This book will help both you, and the person you're close to who suffers from anxiety. There are words of wisdom on how how to not get too involved in the emotions of the sufferer. Taking time for yourself is very important to be of help to them. There's some great tips on being able to spot when a panic attack is going to happen and ways to help alleviate it before it gets to too bad. There's also advice for when things are bad, so you're prepared for all eventualities. I learnt some things I didn't know and other things proved as a useful reminder.
