Okay, so I know I've already asked if people could outgrow panic disorder...but I was just wondering if someone could control their panic disorder when in an extreme conditions. ie--if meeting a celebrity in a meet and greet or at a concert.

I guess if panic comes from a situation where we feel vulnerable, the best way to get over it is by learning from doing what we fear... I think someone's who's afraid of swimming has to swim some time or another to fight that fear... If meeting people is your fear, then meeting people might be the best way to become comfortable with the situation. I dont know.

From my experience, you can still seem to function normally on the outside in public places at work or during a conversation while in panic. It's also possible to get the panic away by thinking about it and rationalising, but first you have to know yourself and your problem. Still it's no fun to be in panic even if on the outside people can't see it. Sometimes panic is meant to get attention while we desperatly seek or need help.

I am sure if you read self help books and work on techniques such as Breathing , Cognitive behavioural Therapy... Relaxation tech's you will prolly be able to handle it ....
Just my opinion

people seldom outgrow it although it can stop for no apparent reason but usually returns later, sometimes years later

you need to work at learning CBT and usually take meds to get better

agoraphobia is unpredictable, but usually when you absolutely have to do something you somehow manage to do it

I think that meeting a celebrity would bring on normal anxiety for anyone!!

In extreme conditions, there are techniques you can use to control the anxiety which may bring the anxiety level down, but i dont think it gets rid of it completely. For example, if Im on a Big Wheel (I think they are called Ferris Wheels in USA) and Im afraid of heights, when im at the top I might feel really anxious. Concentrating on my breathing and focusing on a static object inside the cart (like my feet) would also help.

I hope this answers your question

I went to AA and yes it was like that for me as well
I now dont go to meetings but I still converse with my sponser from all those yrs ago .......

I think as well if you give up everything you have learned to do to help with ANY disorder /disease becuase you feel better and are doing better will and can cause a relapse
