Question scared and hopeless

I am a daycare teacher...or should I say was. I began having severe panic attacks in November everyday before I went to work. It got so bad that in December I was sent on sick leave. My leave is now over and I have to start looking for a job. The thought of daycare now terrifies me, but I don't know what else to do. How do I get the courage to go back?

Re: scared and hopeless

books and courses on overcoming agoraphobia and panic disorder have all the info you need, theres also some info on the net
try your local library

courage wont stop the panic attacks, you need to learn new coping skills

meds help, any valium type med will help a lot and can be taken only as needed, an antidepressant also often helps

see the panic disorders board here
