Re: I think i have a panic disorder.
Panic attacks can prevent us from leaving our homes out of the fear of having one and then it feels like we are being controlled by the disorder. I found a mental health facility that pays for everything if you dont have insurance and if you do have insurance, they pay what the insurance doesnt. I am getting therapy once a week and am learning a lot. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone and that there may be a facility like this in your area. I learned that my problem really was not the actual panic attacks.....it is the fear of having one. This has helped me to cope better and it has also helped me to push myself to get out more and to realize that I cannot let this disorder take control of my life anymore. I still have good and bad days too, but there are now more good days than bad and this is progress. Please know that you are not alone and that there is hope for us.
