I had panic and now I don't. I probably won't ever again. I would advise you to take my tips seriously.
When I say this is the quick guide to stopping panic, that is exactly what I mean. You are telling me your method is better, yet you have not cured your anxiety disorder. That is not true that you are just unable to sit still and relax. I mean, if you need to walk a little or move a little with all that adrenaline flowing then there's no harm in that. But not to go searching for help or reassurance. But if you do these tips at the very beginning stages, your adrenaline may barely get released anyway. But I would advise you to just try this exactly as I laid out and see how it goes.
It is untrue that you MUST contact friends and drive somewhere, Dazza. That is only if you are not being at your most courageous self. A panic attack is a load of bullshit, and nothing bad will ever come of it. When you completely understand it and take that in, you don't need to run from it because it's a bluff anyway. Who cares if your heart is racing and you feel you are going crazy if you realize it is just a panic attack. Every runner, biker and swimmer has their heart race. But if you follow these tips I laid above, you may not even get into full blown panic. But searching for help and running around and over breathing and screaming HELP! isn't how you cure yourself. You may find a friend, family member or doctor to reassure you that you are ok, and then your panic attack may subside. But it will just happen again if this is your method of curing yourself. Or you can take medication with side effects which you will always need to take. My tips here are not to make you feel better and give you some nonsense reassurance, but to assist in curing you of panic completely and learn to out bluff the bluff.
Just take the right herbs and supplements to nourish your nerves, follow these tips, lead a healthy lifestyle with yoga and exercise and natural food, fully understand anxiety and what your symptoms mean, and force yourself to be in fearful situations and override the anxiety and the voices telling you that you can't do this or that or you will die, and you will be real good!
I would suggest you follow the tips at the top of the post word for word at least one time when you feel the first stages of panic come on and test it out and see. Just give it a try. Don't say I can't. Just do it. You will not die! Just try it.
God helps those who help themselves PERIOD!
