I've always considered myself to be a fairly laid back contented soul, fully appreciative of what I've got in life and not in any way prone to anxiety , stress or the like. So quite honestly panic / anxiety attacks were the last thing I'd ever have expected to have direct personal experience of...

published 01/11/2004

ProNone

ConsFrightening and exhausting.

I cannot say whether there will be very much advice in this piece of writing, perhaps there is advice of which I am unaware of. My mind is still a bit cloudy of the events but I felt compelled to write my feelings. If my room 101was empty I would have banished it there. However this is my 101st...

ConsIt's an awful illness.

I have been deliberating about weather publishing my experiences of anxiety and panic on Dooyoo is the right thing to do, because it is a very personal problem and not something which I find easy to talk about.

ConsIf you let it it can take over your life.

I like to think of my panic attacks as a person, an enemy trying to stop me acheiving my goals, living a normal existence. I have suffered from panic attacks since the age of seven. They started off pretty mild and at sucja young age I didn't know what was happening. My fear was eating. During a...
