I hate panic attacks, I really, truly do. The ONLY good thing about having them is it makes me very sympathetic when Tigger has them (but then the guilt, did he get them from me???) I do the CBT thing and talk myself down. I have medications if it is really bad. husband has learned how to help if I'm totally overwhelmed. But I still hate them. I put myself out as a volunteer doing something I love, but it also requires me to "work" with people who have all the power and while I can (and have) simply walk away if they become too overbearing, it still causes panic that they will undo my hard work due to their political agendas. The only reason I do it is because I help children and it is fun when the politics stay out of it!
