Hi, I am a 24 yr old man who has been battling panic attacks for 8 yrs. It first started over simply reading a book at the age of 16. I was strolling at a bookstore and saw a book my history teacher mentioned about. It was a book about Japanese atrocities committed in China during WWII and he warned students it contained graphic images. I remembered the warning but I was curious about what really happened and thought I could handle it at the age of 16. Really unwise decision on my part. After looking at few disturbing images which were beyond my imagination, I was greatly disturbed, felt like fainting. So I closed the book and went home immediately. Since then, I have been suffering from PTSD, panic attacks which happen irregularly. I have talked to my psychologist once about the problem but never dealt with it in depth. I am going to keep asking people around in real life to get help on this. If any of you have dealt with panic attacks, could you offer me some advice?
