If he has an anxiety attack around you the first thing you can try to do is make him feel as comfortable as possible. When people have anxiety attacks they can no longer think logically. Tell him he's okay, nothings going to happen, you're here for him, you can help him. Ask him if you can do anything for him. Continue to reassure him. Also, ask him what he needs when he's having an anxiety attack. For example, I need a quiet place, other people may need someone to talk to, it all depends on the person.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.
