Calling friends helps me in dealing with anxiety attacks

Here are my experiences in overcoming panic attacks. I never suffered a panic attack until I realized that I was being mentally abused by my now ex-husband. When I finally had the courage to leave and he was way out of reach, that is when I experienced my first panic attack.

Out of nowhere I would begin to experience the symptoms of panic attack. I could be reading a book, trying to perform my duties at work, or even sleeping. I would shake, sweat and hyperventilate.

I was scared and couldn't put my finger on the causes of these anxiety attacks, or why I was feeling this way. As the panic attacks became more frequent, I sought the help of a professional therapist.

I was prescribed Buspar as a treatment for anxiety attacks. I was able to analyze key events of my life with my therapist, to find the origins of my new disorder.

Even though it took about 2 years to stabilize, I was eventually weaned off the Buspar, and my therapist.

Now I combat any infrequent panic attacks, by phoning good friends and discussing the stressor that created the current attack. Talking with a professional or a real close friend or family member will ease your mind and stop panic attacks.
