Maybe you should try learning some breathing techniques or meditation.
I always feel as tho I take one step forward or ten steps back, and I do have the ups and downs as well... where I'll be feeling fine for a few hours and then WHAM I feel a surge of panic and I have to take a Lorazepam. (which I usually try to not take so much)
You may feel like you're not making any progress, but you are.
If you feel like you need meds, (which I thought I could battle my panic disorder without meds, but I couldn't) then talk to your doctor about
what med would be right for you.
