My Story:
Retired therapist, age 64, with long hx of panic attacks and agoraphobia. Did a lot of research on panic d/o and agora. for 300 pg. Master's thesis, written in 1993 in book form, with intent to publish, but haven't so far. Became a therapist with intent of helping others with this disorder. Had to retire due to pain from failed neck surgery. (I refuse to take pain meds, due to withdrawal potential) Loving but baffled husband. Went to therapy for approx. 15 yrs - 1970s-80s -cognitive/behavioral - all forms, biofeedback, talk therapy - was in a University clinical study for 4 yrs regarding panic dis/agoraphobia. Long hx of childhood fears, phobias. It's been a very long, difficult, 40 yr. struggle. Wish by now they had found a real 'cure'. Doctors don't seem to understand. Numerous withdrawals from benzodiazepines, rx'd by dr's.
