    I have just experienced my daughters first panic attack and it was heartbreaking. Looking back I realize she had anxiety issues as a child. It seemed to get worse when she moved away from home and while visiting she had a full blown episode. This podcast really helped me with information (wish i knew about it before the attack) but now i feel more capable of helping her see things differently and feel confident in how I can help her through if Im there and it happens again. I really appreciate the information!

      Sorry to hear about your daughter’s panic attack. It can be so hard to watch. I am so glad this episode will help you! Thank you for taking the time to share your story ❤️.

    Thank you for this useful podcast. My eight year old daughter has been having strangely manifesting panic attacks since she was five. We’ve been to neurologists, counselors, had an MRI, EEG, etc. all we hear is “hmm…I have never seen anything quite like that”, but we continue as parents to try to figure it all out. She has been on an SSRI for nine months or so, but we are now tapering her off because we don’t think it’s actually helping all that much, but now she’s tired and crying multiple times a day. It is all very difficult to sort through.
    Anyhow, not to bury you with details, but your podcast was useful. There were some things I had already learned through my own research, but some new tips and techniques as well. Thanks!
