  • I've been there with panic attacks. They suck! I went to therapy for them and was told that the fear of an attack is what brings it on; you need to occupy your mind; I know it sounds crazy but my therapist told me to put a rubber band on my wrist and when I start to feel anxous to snap it and them my mind is on the pain and not on whatever was going to set me off. I went on Paxil for the attacks; I used to work in Manhattan and had to take a bus everyday and just the thought of the bus would set me off. The paxil was like magic; never had one again.
