Síndrome do Pânico: Minha História de Cura Após 9 Anos

Marking and Advancing Straps – My Personal Story of Overcoming Panic Attacks
In 2005, I experienced my first panic attack and from then on, I had countless episodes which happened mostly at night. Due to my personal experience, I understand panic attacks better than anyone else. The journey to recovery has been long and difficult, but it was the only option I had. Yes, panic attacks can be cured.
Learning how to cope with panic attacks can be beneficial not only for yourself but for your loved ones as well. Now, let me share my story of how I overcame panic attacks.
I have always been an anxious child, and my childhood experiences only contributed to my anxiety even more. In 2005, I almost had a panic attack in a restaurant, and it was then when I first realized that something was wrong. At first, I didn’t know it was a panic attack, and I was convinced that I was going to have a heart attack. I went to the doctor, and he explained to me that it was a panic attack. However, I had no idea what it was or what to expect.
At that time, I had been studying architecture, and my unhealthy eating habits triggered my panic attacks. I used to eat a lot of Chinese and Asian food, which often had monosodium glutamate (MSG). MSG could trigger panic attacks in people who are prone to them.
Later on, I had another panic attack, and it was worse than the first one. I thought I was going to die, and an ambulance was called to take me to the hospital. From 2005 to 2014, I had many panic attacks. I tried different treatments, but nothing seemed to work. I felt like I was sinking into a hole, and I thought I would never get out of it.
Because of my panic attacks, I developed a fear of closed spaces, such as elevators or underground parking. I also had trouble breathing, and I felt like I was going to die. It was difficult for me to accept that I had this problem, but with the help of my therapist, I learned to accept it.
In 2011, I moved to Switzerland, and my panic attacks got worse. However, I refused to give up, and I started praying to God for help. The turning point for me was when I accepted my panic attacks as part of my life. I changed my mindset and decided to face my fears instead of running away from them.
I started to change my habits, such as doing more outdoor activities, like hiking and biking. I exercised regularly, and I tried to stay focus on other things instead of my panic attacks. Whenever I felt like I was going to have a panic attack, I distracted myself by doing other things. Gradually, I learned to control them and eventually, I became panic attack-free.
Today, I am grateful for my journey, and I am happy to share my story with others. I hope my story will help those who are struggling with panic attacks. Remember, panic attacks can be cured, and there is always hope.
Remember that there is always help available. Do not let your fear control your life. Face your fears, and you will overcome them. My journey was long and difficult, but I learned to control my fears, and so can you.
