Mooney123, YES I overcame this, after suffering for about 30 years and so can anyone else, if you really want to.
IMO meds help to relieve the symptoms but it is a changed attitude that provides the cure, whether that is brought about with the help of meds or solely by deliberate, concentrated thinking.
I have actually been trying for the last 2 weeks or so to give myself a panic attack, but haven't even got close, and they once ruled my daily life. No I'm not mad I just want to prove to myself and others that I am fully over it.
I no longer have to cope with A/P or manage it, I simply don't get the symptoms or feelings any more.
