Living With Fear.

I have had panic attacks for over twenty years, and I have gradually learned to cope with them. My first panic attack saw me head for the emergency department where the doctor asked my friend if I had taken drugs. To top it off they sent me home with valium and said you will be fine. Boy have we come along way from those days.

I have suffered from panic attacks for 18 years and like you have learned to control them to a certain degree. When I feel a massive one coming (mostly at night when I'm in bed) I normally let it run its course and tbh actually feel better afterwards. Mine can last up to 3 hours and have put me in hospital on a number of occasions:((

LOL....kismet I have just written something similarr in a comment in another done!
