Hey. I know how you feel. Have exactly the same. Panic attacks, agophobia, feeling detached. Everyday I would wake up in a panic. My sleep is severely impaired (keep waking up panicking). But trust me youll get better. Ive said this in other posts but ive had them, then they disappear completely for decades until my next major meltdown. For me last year it triggered again after this woman at work was bullying me and forced me to quit. It was months of enormous stress and being subjected to her verbal abuse and then one day I had a major panic attack and then my life changes in the most restrictive way. But it will get better. What goes up must come down and anxiety is no different. Just like you I do not take medication and never will.

Hey tonino, I hope things are getting better for you. I've been battling with with Panic Disorder (on and off for almost 20 years) and I will tell you this. It will get better. There are bright days ahead. It takes time, and you have to learn to manage it somehow. This is the trick. Learning to managing you own anxieties is tough, but with practice it works. Stick with therapy as well, although if you don't like your psychiatrist and feel they are not listening to you, then I recommend finding another. Finding a good psychiatrist is a lot like dating, you will find that not all them are the right person for you.

Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
