5. I attended Recovery International's meetings when I was in my early 30's

over 40 yrs ago. It was a great help to me then, in getting through the panic attacks I experienced from my unpreparedness for raising four young children.

Finding a good group that fits one's availability may be harder now, depending on one's location, but it is worth seeking out a group and giving yourself a chance to benefit from the structure of the program.

"Feelings are not facts" has always remained with me.

I continued to have panic attacks off and on over the years, invariably in the night hours, but now I've sort of wearied of them, knowing that a trip to an emergency room is more bother than it's worth, so I've learned to get through them for the most part without the distress I formerly suffered.
