I have had anxiety/panic attacks for over 25 years. The anxiety and panic will subside for months at a time and then will come back for a few months. It’s very frustrating and very upsetting. I don’t know how to get through the panic attacks. It is very tough to have a normal life.

Hi @Prime21 , and welcome to SAS.��

Sorry to hear you're struggling like that, it's awful I know.

Has medication helped you much @Prime21 ? And also a good therapist should be able to suggest some coping techniques as well - but I'm assuming maybe you've already been down those avenues?

I do hope you find some good resources to help you. I get into some quite triggered states of mind similar to panic attacks, and I use mindfulness (there's a lot about it on the internet) to help me through it. Doesn't prevent it from happening though, unfortunately.

I assume the medicine is helping. I do have a therapist. I will look into the mindfulness. Good idea. Thank you
