Went to a group therapy meeting run by two therapists for anxiety/panic and depression. The therapists tried to convince me that the physical sensations during a panic attack are like getting a workout and one therapist said a racing heart is good for the heart, even though I stressed that I had PVCs not a racing heart. One therapist asked if I would consider doing intense physical exercise when the PVCs are triggering panic. When I explained the feeling of dread I get with the physical sensations I felt like they weren't getting it, that I had to convince them what the feeling of doom/dread is. I felt stressed trying to explain my condition. I told them there are times when my brain crosses a threshold and panic settles in and it requires medication or extraordinary means, like a trip to the ER, to snap out of it. I believe panic, unlike exercise, is not good for me and did not agree with their views. Am I wrong here or are their views more accurate? I have been diagnosed with Panic Disorder. Any opinions/advice is welcome.
