ive had panic disorder all my life i had agoraphobia for 10 yrs it was like being in a nightmare but awake i hate taking medicines but it is a necssity unless you want to suffer needlessly one thing to remember as bad as panic attacks are you are not going to die and you will not loose your mind and drift into the abyss lol (not funny (really)but u do have to learn that if u keep lookin over your shoulder for 'it' that creates more anxiety i actually after 10 yrs got fed up with bein so scared and getting your mind off yourproblems (easier sed than done) it helps immensely just try to do stuff to create normalcy in your life and give yourself positive feedback you are not alone by far!! if u have any questions id love to help ive been there could call me a expert!god bless debris64

I would ask your mom or parental figure to have you see a doctor before you assume anything. I have lived with it since twelve years old. Do know that hormones play a part in anxiety. Do research on anxiety panic attacks and have a professional Psychiatrist evaluate you first. I would not suggest that you just let it pass by, or that it will go away because sometimes things can get progressively worse if you do not talk about it. If you are certain you have panic attacks do know that you are not alone and there is help out there, do not be afraid to speak up.
I know exactly what you mean, I'v been having anxiety and agoraphobia since i was in elementary on and off, i'v never really taken meds other than xanax and rarely also cause i dont want that to become my prison.It seems that it goes away for a period then comes back once i get a full blown panic attack like recently, now im in constatant fear of fear.I'm 32 now and I'm having a pretty tough time right now but hopefully by the Grace of God and help from you good people I can get back to my normal self.i really need to find something to keep my mind occupied so writing this and expressing myself helps alot.Thank you very much for your insight and listening.God Bless
