I lasted two and a half hours, no panic attack, just a little shaking because I forgot to eat, but NO Panic attacks at all! To understand this, you have to realize that it’s been about a year since I left the house and when I do go somewhere, there’s a 50% chance that I’ll have a panic attack or episode. This may not sound like a lot if someone doesn’t live with these conditions, but it is a big deal! I am so proud of myself… That is my good news…♥
