I've been having panic attacks since I was 12. I am recovering from alcoholism...in AA for over 2 years. So many times I feel upset by the 'tough love' of 'you'll get over it' 'just do something for someone else' or 'get out of yourself, panic is nothing but self-centered fear'. If it were only that easy. When I start to panic, I can't even think. I am so tired of all the band-aid statements by well-meaning people who have never experienced that choking, mind-numbing panic that hits me at the worst possible moments. Is there anyone out there who really understands?
