I didn't care for any of the medicines. I have depression and panic attacks as well, so I certainly know where youre coming from. I found a... different way to deal with it. Im reluctant to share this any time I do because I'm surprised it worked. It doesn't seem like it should.
I repeatedly terrified myself. Over and over again, on purpose. I use things like scary stories or videos. something that could get me ued to the feelings of dread, that i wasi n complete control over and could stop at any time I needed. Gave me something to focus my anxiety on, so it didnt keep looking for random things to consider threats. For so long I just tried to hide away from anything that might scare me, but that just made it worse. I had to confront it, and so that's what I did.
My panic attacks havent gone away utterly. But they are shorter, less frequent, and I am able to remind myself I'm not going to die and actually believe it. I recognize the feelings as fear, rather than an actual problem. If that makes any sense.
