I am so glad, that I am not alone, with having Panic Attacks. They were so bad at one time that I wouldn't go anywhere, no holidays, no staying over at friends houses, not going out socially. I have suffered with them for 12 years, at one time I used to dread nighttime coming , because that is when most of my attacks happen. I have received ,counselling, cbt therapy, none of which helped me. They are the most horrendous things to suffer from, I literally thought I was going to die, and that just made the panic worse. The only thing that works for me is Diazapam, Ido not take them regularly, only when I can feel an anxiety attack coming on, if you like its a quick fix! But it works and at last I have started going out, and have booked a holiday, life is worth living now😀 I have emphasemia stage 4, and being sob is my main problem, unfortunately the Diazapam won't cure that.
