There’s very little in this world that is as frightening and uncomfortable as a panic attack. Once they start, panic attacks can send you spiralling out of control.
Many people who suffer from panic attacks already have several treatment options that they are using. Sometimes these treatments work very well, and sometimes they hardly work at all. Some panic sufferers have to try many different options before finding one that works reasonably well for them.
Even if you find something that works, you may have episodes where the treatment fails, or where treatment is not an option. For example:
You may run out of your medication and be unable to get any more of it for a few hours or days.
You may have a serious episode and be unable to get an appointment with your therapist or doctor right away.
You may not be able to afford to seek medical treatment at the time.
