Panic therapy - can anyone share their experiences on how to stop panic attacks?
Should I seek panic therapy to stop my panic attacks? I've been on meds (Celexa) for a while to stop my panic attacks but I heard that those medicines were for anti-depressants instead of treating panic attacks. If anyone knows please tell, thanks.

Eek. I hated Celexa. I'm on Paxil right now, which is an anti-depressant with an anti-anxiety combined in it, and it's working really well for me.

One way to help keep your attacks in check is deep breathing. I learned this from a's an ancient Chinese remedy:

Take slow, deep breaths through your nose, into your stomach. While you're inhaling, imagine a balloon in your stomach, growing with the air you're filling it with. As you exhale, imagine there's a string tied from the balloon to your back and you're letting the air out of it.

After a couple of these deep breaths, take a few normal ones so you don't make yourself hyperventilate. I know it sounds kinda silly, but it works well. I've been using this trick for like...5 years or so. Also, while it's happening, just keep in mind that it won't hurt you at all, it's just your body taking a little trip, that's all. Just wait it out and keep breathing and stay as calm as you can. It'll be over soon.

Tips & Advice for Panic Disorder/Agoraphobia?
Hi everyone. I haven't written here in a while, and I'm about to make a huge decision for myself. Therefore, I have decided to resort to who else other than people who go through this every day. Well, a little about me:

My life has been completely ruined by my anxiety, panic attacks and agoraphobia. For the past three months I have been a prisoner in my own home. It began with just a bit of gephyrobia (fear of bridges), but they've escalated to any type of transportation: buses, trains, trolleys, cars. You name it, I'm afraid of it. On September 13th, 2011, I had 8 panic attacks in a day for the first time in my life. It was the scariest day I've ever lived. After that I went to a psychiatrist and they gave me a referral (yes, just a referral) and I made an appointment to be seen. Unfortunately, since I have no medical insurance I was unable to make an appointment because they do not take people who do not have medical insurance. Since then, my mother came from NY to visit me (I live in Philadelphia) to help me get out of my shell. We went to the local mall where I picked up some L-Theanine because according to the guy that worked there, they were very good for anxiety. I pretty much used these as a resort to my anxiety (the most I took was 800mg which according to information is the maximum safe dosage). I used them the first couple of days and then I overcame my fear pretty much, BUT I can only go a certain amount of distance from my house without causing a panic attack. The most recent one was on November 13th when my mom came to visit me, took me to the mall, and on my way back I just had a panic attack out of nowhere. Anyway, this has caused me to not be able to work, not be able to do anything. I have no friends, my family is two and a half hours away, and I'm afraid that my boyfriend - who up until now has been very supportive - will get sick and tired of not being able to do anything with me and will leave me.

So I have taken the final resort. I've decided to go back to New York since I am still under my mother's medical insurance and can see a psychiatrist and get some help. Not only that but I can try and work again to get over my anxiety and my fear. The reason I am writing this is because I am wondering if anyone can help me with some tips, helpful advice on how to remain calm during a two and a half hour drive to New York, and going over a bridge at that (my biggest fear). Look forward to hearing from you all.

Thank you for reading.

That is a long drive in the best of circumstance. Plus, the weather could change. Find out if one of your siblings could come to town and drive you, or sell your car and take a Greyhound bus. You can't start the trip, then, panic and stop in the middle of the road. There might be places to stop, but what about in between those. I don't see how we can help you. Have your mother fly in if there is no sibling and drive you both back home. If you panic, you don't breathe. Are you practicing breathing. Don't hyperventilate, but practice a few cleansing breaths (Yoga). Do those, when the attacks start. You are making yourself a prisoner from fear. You need help ASAP. The last thing you need is worrying about driving that far.
