After a year in therapy and a year on Celexa I can honestly say that the panic attacks are not so bad anymore. Before my muscles would tense up and I would be flushed with a sense of fear and dread. I felt like I was dying and I hated not being in control of my body. Now I am able to go on public transportation and riding in cars is not so much of a nightmare. It took a long time to recover and I am still recovering a little bit each day, but I am happier and a little grateful to know that I can take on anything.
