I think that there needs to be a balance when dealing with anxiety and panic. Do we acknowledge it? Yes! Do we dwell on it? No!
Giving the anxiety too much power over us by centering on it is not productive of course...but neither can we just 'act normal' and wish it away. It is a real disorder with mental and physical causes. You certainly wouldn't tell a diabetic "If you want normal blood sugar, just act like you have normal blood sugar"
Seeking treatment in whatever way works for you is always a smart and commendable thing to do:) It is a personal choice what route you choose, and well worth the effort. Don't give up, or let anyone persuade you in your decsion...it is yours and yours alone.
"Courage is not the abscence of fear, it is feeling afraid and doing it anyway!"
"It is when we are most lost that we sometimes find our truest friends"
