    Hi Deppwilliam,

    I feel for you. I know how scary & unsettling panic attacks are...I haven’t had too many of them, but the few I had were alarming & scary to me.

    Good on you for bravely reaching out here :)

    I’m not sure if there’s necessarily a “cure”, but I think it’s more about managing it & keeping it under control (so to speak).

    I’m happy to offer some suggestions, & you can see what you think:

    • I would gently suggest booking a Skype, FaceTime or video chat call with your GP to discuss your mental health with him/her. I would also suggest asking about a Mental Health Care Plan. If your GP deems it appropriate, it would entitle you to a certain number of Medicare rebatable services
    • I would also suggest looking up Headspace online, as they have a strong reputation for helping young people with mental health issues with a variety of free services.
    • Consider looking up a Beyondblue thread called Self help tips for managing anxiety. I think the easiest way to find it is simply to type the thread name in the beyondblue search bar. It’s a pretty long thread though, so if it’s a bit much, maybe just skim read the 1st & last page or read a post or 2 each day.

    I hope this gives you some ideas :)

    Kindness & care,

    Hi Deppwilliam!

    I agree with Peppermintbach, panic attacks can be very unsettling and scary!
