What is the cure for panic attacks?
“Should I call the hospital?” I asked as I kneeled over my boyfriend who was on the ground, flushed red and holding his pounding heart. He screamed, “No I’m fine!”
This was the first time he had a panic attack in response to me wanting to break up with him. It was to happen again the following week, and yet again a few weeks later. It was then that I told him I decided to keep triggering him, and would not let up until he was cured.
What is the cure for panic attacks? My method with him seems cold, and he’s probably the only person who would get this type of a response from me, but did this work? Yes, it did. At least in our case. We were unhappily married for a few of years, but his panic attacks ceased and he hasn’t had another one in the past 7 years. We are no longer a couple now, but that’s a good thing. 🙂
