It is lovely to see a response from you. I hope your Dr was supportive and helpful. It may be very beneficial to see a counsellor as well.
I do find some information in the internet to helpful, some is also confusing.
I've learnt I don't cope well when I am in a situation where I feel out of control or confronted.
Going in to work for me, I work alone at the front desk and have been verbally attacked a few times the moment I walk in the door.
I am aware of my thinking now and try to counter act it before it escalates.
I am also very aware there are times I can not stop a panic attack and that is okay as well. When they escalate for me I can't stop them.
I'm not sure what the counsellor or the Dr have suggested, but are there ways you can assist yourself after an attack so you don't feel so stressed and anxious?
When I feel an attack coming on that I can't control, I will tell people what is happening. Some try to assist, some ask how they can help and others flee thinking I am a lunatic.
Knowing other people experience the same thing as you or something similar can help unravel the concerns and mysteries of our experiences as well.
If you want to share more, this is a safe place to do so.
Hope you find some answers! Regards form Dools
