Anxiety-Panic Expert Q&A's
Name: Shaista

Hi, I came to know a few months ago that the symptoms I had been having from my childhood were those of an anxiety disorder; and when I searched about it on the internet, I came to the conclusion that it was a mix of the two phobias; that is, I have this social phobia in highly specific and not all social situations. By getting aware of my problem, I managed to overcome the depression which I did have as a secondary problem to the anxiety disorder. Now the risk remains that I may go into the constant state of depression again at any time because of an unpredictable anxiety-provoking situation. I recently faced two such situations but successfully managed to overcome the overwhelming symptoms of anxiety in order not to allow them to cause a state of depression.

Hi Shaista

It is excellent that you were able to control over your anxiety. This is a great first step.

Why not consider cognitive behavioural therapy ? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the most effective therapy in the long term for anxiety disorders.

Your doctor can refer you to a CBT therapist, or you can visit our international referral pages: www.panicattacks.com.au/pa/links/cbtindex.html
