Manage panic: With e-a-s-e. 1)eliminate the stressor from your life (stay away from the people) 2)alter the impact of the stressor (talk to the people about what stresses you); 3)shift your outlook (change your beliefs & negative self-talk about the people); & 4) ease your response (learn relaxation skills & be healthy -- exercise & good nutrition). Counseling can help.

Hmmmm . . . .: Other people can certainly behave in ways that trigger you. However, can you imagine yourself able to take hold of your own energy so that panic attacks no longer happen? Other people do what they do, and your system responds in the way it knows best right now -- and creating new neural pathways is possible. Psychotherapy can help you understand your responses, and break free of this cycle.
