    I have suffered from anxiety & panic attacks all my life. Reciently I have been diagnosed with possible terminal cancer. Now I no longer have those attacks. Nothing seems to bother me the way they used to. It seems strange but I enjoy everyday better than I ever did. Live every day like it may be your last.
