back when I got it with the panic attacks back in 1956 almost nobody knew how to help, many psychs thought I had incurable schizophrenia
being a talkative type I had many hours of psychotherapy which added bewilderment and gave no help at all
I also got the wrong meds in the wrong doses
eventually I diagnosed myself and recovery was quick and not hard, I learned CBT and relaxation from self help books and took meds in the right doses
I also got much help talking with other sufferers as up to then I had been convinced that I was unique, the psychs all, cruelly, told me thay had never seen anyone like me sad
 
recovering was no more difficult than living with it, but it was difficult and sometimes uncomfortable
 
I stopped having panic attacks about 12 years ago, I can remembr the last ones cleaarly though
since I am a man, it was more difficult as many dismissed me as just weak or even cowardly for not successfully fighting back against it until I beat it on my own
recovered former longtime anxiety and panic attack sufferer and helper of other sufferers  but no training or  qualifications in medicine or psychology, any remarks that may be taken as advice must be confirmed with doctor or other health professional

Well, more power to you Harry! Congratulations! I'm sooooooooo happy for you! :)
I'm trying the CBT but am sort of uncertain as to how it will help GAD. I don't have to be thinking negatively about myself or ANYTHING and it comes on me! :(
But I'm going to keep trying!
Thanks for the info Harry and for all your advice on the board.
