Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
I'm not sure which disorder you have been diagnosed with, but I'm assuming it's anxiety. Don't be scared. That is part of the disorder and it can be controlled.

If you have been diagnosed, who made the diagnosis? You may just need some lifestyle changes and the use of self-help techniques like relaxation breathing (see our Tips column).

I hope things do improve for you.
