Re: Panic Disorder Sufferer who found you guys.

Thankyou Guys.

This is the first time i have tried any CBT therapies, nine month waiting list in my area.

My GP put me on 5mg of Diazepam to be taken in emergencys! and advised i see a breathing specialist

Going back on Monday after 2 severe panic attacks now in approx. 1 week but don't hold out much hope as there is not a lot he can do.

I have decided self help and support groups may be my best chance of going forward with some confidence. I believe the CBT course will help greatly but i will have to wait and see

Cheers Peeps.

Re: Panic Disorder Sufferer who found you guys.

I also take diaz, had it on an 'as & when' basis for a few years but been on 12mg day since November. It has helped me through a really bad patch. Interesting about the advice to see a breathing specialist....is that to do with the hyperventilating? Only reason I ask is because I had quite a sucessful course of CBT about 6 yrs ago for panic attacks and one of the fundamental things they focussed on was breathing. This time around, my therapist says the approach had changed and they no longer want you to focus on the breathing....she believes this fuels the thoughts and symptoms....I haven't really got to the next part but I think it's mostly about rational thought as opposed to irrational ones.....Anyway, you seem to be approaching it all in a very positive way and I also think the CBT will help a lot.

Re: Panic Disorder Sufferer who found you guys.

Aye Kitty, I believe you are correct there(But don't quote me on that)

The online CBT Course i am doing right now covers the Hyperventilation issue as it is a very common trigger to bring on the Fight or Flight response.

It is all very new to me and i am hoping that it will be of great benefit to me.

I will be continuing it today and hopefully will be able to share the experience/results/my opinions in chat after 5 days.

Cheers.

PJ.
