The information in this link does work for panic attacks. I wish someone had taught it to me 20 years ago and again in Sept. when they started again. An increase in meds didn't help. But this works. I was having them in the middle of the night and by doing this, I've been able to go back to sleep.

Secondary fear is what keeps the chemicals flowing. Again, something I wish I'd known years ago but am thankful to know now.

If able search Claire Weekes. You'll find her videos on YouTube. They are from the 60s. But what she taught and used in her clinics is still helping tons of people. Again, I wish I'd had her book a long time ago. But I still apply what I can.

11. If you "act" calm, you will be calm. Imitate the body language of a relaxed person and you will take on that feeling within minutes.

Thank you for this. I have been titrating down from 1.25. I am now at .75 and the drop is getting so much harder. I was dropping between 2 - 5ml a day but am now holding and then resuming at 2ml. Too much panic making functioning very difficult.
Reading this really helped me today get ready to teach two classes.

I am a 44 year old supposedly 'grown man' but inside I just feel like a scared 5 year old little boy. Does anyone else feel like this? I am scared of EVERYTHING and its ruining my life. Sick of it.
