Congrats! You have taken the first step to push your Panic Away. Don’t stop now and you’ll be glad didn’t.
I’m sick and tiered of the conventional portrayal of anxiety and panic attacks. The sweaty pawns, rapid heart beat and feeling of being trapped are all true but there is much uglier side to anxiety. The side that no one knows until they experience it themselves.
I’m talking about the daily life of someone experiencing anxiety or/and panic attacks. The suffering, the failures and constant state of worrying is the real enemy here.
Don’t get me wrong panic attacks are horrible, and almost everyone remembers their first one. My for example was on a NYC subway, or metro as some would call it. I was coming back from school, something I’ve done everyday for the past three years when the trainsuddenly stopped between the stations.
Despite the fact that there was nothing unusual for a train to make a stop like that, I just froze for a minute. In that minute what felt like an hour all these new and hard to describe feelings flooded my mind at the same time. I can’t even tell you actually what my sympthomes where because it was so new to me and all I could think about is how to get out as fast as I could. I started pacing around nervously which most have looked like I was a ticking bomb as everyone stopped what they were doing and started looking at me.
Luckily the trained started moving and I got out on the next stop and decided to walk home from there. However, the damage has been done and for the next 11 years it has been controlling my life.
That walk was probably one of the worse in my life. While it wasn’t scary like the panic attacked that just happened but the feeling hopelessness was even worse. I kept thinking, am I going mad? Is this going to happen again? And just trying to comprehend WTF was happening to me.
Few days later I had another panic attack which raised my hopelessness and anxiety level even higher. It’s a slippery slope from there and it seemed like my days from then on were filled with either of having panic attacks, being in constant fear of having one or feeling miserable after having one.
This slowly took over my life and everything I loved about it. I dropped out of school, didn’t want to hang out with my friends, isolated myself from love ones and generally tried to avoid everything that might bring on a panic attack.
So what finally lead me to search for help? The realization that I’m no longer ruining my own life but everyone around me. Because fo fear and anxiety I haven’t take my wife on a date for the past 3 years. I never went on any vacations with her or our kids. In fact even picking my daughter from school seems like an impossible task for me at times.
I could no longer do that to them and to myself. This had to stop. After extensive research I finally landed on on Panic Away by Barry McDonagh. The only system out there that has been successfully helping people like you and me for the past 8 years.
Push Away: Review of Panic Away
One of the first things I’ve learned and finally understood after starting Barry McDonagh was the fact that this was not my fault. in fact, none of it is your fault as well. It is just they way we are programed that skew some of us into panic attacks and higher levels anxiety. However, it is your responsibility to do something about.
That is why it is crucial to get started with Panic Away right now. Haven’t you suffered from it log enough.
