I stood in the queue and began to panic.   I ran out of the shop and now I don’t go shopping.

I felt afraid to go out where I might meet people.My heart would pound and I felt dizzy.So I stay at home a lot,until I decided to do something about it . 

Anne-Mother Of Three children 
When I first went for help it took some time to understand my symptoms were due to panic.Then I learned how to control them.I thought I was going to die or lose control.I thought I was going to have a heart attack.Going to the groups helped me so much and now I live a normal life .

DONT SUFFER THESE ATTACKS ANY LONGER
