I’ve struggled with panic disorder for 6 years now. Medication has unfortunately never been an option and still isn’t an option for me. I’ve finally gotten into therapy, but am only able to go every 4 weeks due to my therapist being booked up. How do you cope with panic disorder? I thought I would’ve been able to have more help and resources with where I’m at now, but unfortunately that’s now how it has turned out to be. I don’t consume caffeine, alcohol, or drugs and get out every day. I’m just curious to see what you guys think. :)

      Have you tried a different therapist? My last therapist could only see me every other week, my current therapist sees me weekly and I've noticed a big difference

      coping mechanisms and grounding exercises can help when you feel an attack coming on. 5 senses exercise and 10 count breathing are my go tos:)

      What is the main cause of your panic? For me, it is almost exclusively my son (him getting hurt, kidnapped, etc.) I find that spending more time with him greatly eases that panic. And when he goes to bed I have a baby monitor, triple check the locks on all the doors and windows, and make sure all the blinds are closed. My husband is a truck driver so when he is gone I'm basically a single mom which makes my son a valuable target for kidnaps. It is very important for me to always make sure he is okay
