People who have talked to me in the chat recently would know that I have been suffering from intensely painful panic attacks for the last few weeks. I have talked to therapists about it and got few advices but I am still struggling. My therapist reminded me that the panic attack stems from fears, not being able to face fears and deal with them. But I don't have guts to face my fears because they are so horrific, disturbing images. At 16, I was accidentally exposed to horrific images of WWII and was deeply traumatized. The memory is still there and it pops up occasionally to bother me. I wish I could erase them somehow. Another thing that is causing my panic attack is an incident which happened few weeks ago. I was so mentally depressed, withdrawan that I decided to look up suicide method although I am fundamentally against suicide. There were some disturbing suicide methods which I read and I immediately got panic attack. I have been having panic attack since. I need you guys' help. In order to overcome panic attack, I have to face my fears. But how do you face fears when u were so shocked, disturbed by what you read, saw? How should I go about gradually overcoming my panic attack?
