I have seen a doctor who specializes in anxiety disorders, and that has helped. Also, I have done my own research on anxiety
and panic attacks
, and the more knowledge I have, the more in control I am. So, try to learn as much as you can about your symptoms, and know that you have someone to talk to who understands. When you get attacks, become active to get your mind off of it, or call and talk to one of your friends, or even your mother.
