Hiya

I am new and just wanted to say hi...in between gasping for breath as just reading about panic attacks sets my panic off lol

Im 31 female and in the uk and am so pleased im not alone. I can relate to all the 'you know you have panic disorder when.....' topics, they gave me a good laugh as well as plunging me into a panic.

Anyway I dnt feel so alone now, so thanx.

Re: newbie

You're definitely not alone.
I'm a 32 year old male who has always felt really confident, with a kind of "nothing bothers me" attitude - I've always liked to be the one that people can depend on.
Anyway, 6 months ago I thought I was having a heart attack and called myself an ambulance. Basically I ended up in A&E 3 times in 5 days, before being told I was suffering from severe anxiety and panic attacks.
I was shocked, as was everyone that knew me, and I went through the whole 'feeling alone - no-one knows how I feel' thing. The emotions you feel are incredible (and very scary).
I have been having therapy and taking medication since then, and also doing a lot of research. It has given me great comfort to see how common this is, and that you can get through it (or at least learn to live with it).
I just take each day on it's own merit at the moment, and try to feel pleased with what I am achieving rather than frustrated with what I can't.

Hope you are coping well.
