My therapist of 3 months told me there are lots of people with this disorder. But I always feel like such a circus freak for having a panic attack over standing in line at the grocery store! I've been suffering from this for almost 2 years now and I don't know why it started with me. I hate it more than anything. I wonder if my quality of life will ever be even BEARABLE again. The list of things that cause me to have attacks seems to be getting longer. Or if I conquer one, another pops up. I'm scared to do lots of things for fear of passing out especially in public. I definitely have some agoraphbia now. I live with my boyfriend and he is gone for 3-5 months overseas. I'm all alone and afraid I won't be able to handle myself. I'm afraid of losing my job or having to quit. And my boyfriend just does not understand...so it's hard for him to be supportive. I want to fight this so bad but I'm afraid it will never really go away. Meds seem to be the next option. Has anyone ever actually had panic attacks stop after starting meds?
