Is it normal to let it slide my bf hurt me during an anxiety fit?

My boyfriend has anxiety about crowded areas, I wanted to go to the mall with him to buy some new clothes. We were holding hands and there was a crowd infront of us so he stopped walking, I told him I would be right with him through it but he wasn't paying attention he just freezes up. I let go of his hand and he got really mad about that and grabbed my wrist and pulled me back to the car. It hurt bad enough for me to cry, but it was my fault for trying to push him into a situation he didn't want to be in so I forgave him and let it go. Am I wrong?

Is It Normal?

  • I think he shouldn't have taken his anger out on you.
    But you also shouldn't have taken him somewhere you knew he'd be in comfortable. The actual act of him hurting you, though, is entirely his fault and you should confront him about it.
    Yes, he was scared but he shouldn't take his anger out on you of all people.

  • Not normal. Not a good excuse for hurting you. Did he even apologize?

  • Big red flag.

    He shouldn't make you responsible for his anxiety, and hurt you out of anger. He had anxiety before you met him, and I'm sure he wasn't going around yanking people to the car because of an attack.

    Also, it's not your fault. You're doing normal things that couples typically do, which is go out.

    Anyway, he handled his anxiety attack wrong by hurting you. Which means it'll only get worse from here, and you'll find yourself either going out alone or with friends more than with your boyfriend, or he's going to use his condition to control you and keep you in the house with him most of the time.
