My Partner Is Cold And Uncaring

I've been with my current bf for four and a half years. We are complete opposites, and lately that fact has really strained our relationship. I have anxiety disorder which I have been dealing with for years. My bf does not understand this, nor does he try to. He keeps telling me to "toughen up" and "get over ****," but he does not realize that I have no control over it. I have struggled with anxiety and panic since I was a teen, and I doubt I will one day just get over it. I do realize that it's a problem and causes difficulty in my life, so I mentioned to him that I wanted to seek help. He scoffed and said that nothing will help me except for me to realize that there is nothing to worry about. He has this idea that I can control these feelings, but I honest to God cannot. I'm at my wit's end, I really don't know what to do. I love him very much, but I sometimes think that the relationship is part of the problem. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance.
