Yes I'm in Toronto. They can get so expensive. This one is a registered psychotherapist and she's willing to lower her cost to help me out which is great. I hope she helps. I do like exercising and used too at least two three times a week but since this happened I cannot find the energy or motivation to exercise. I try and go for walks here and there to do a bit of exercise.

Omg. The first lady I went to who didnt knw anything was a family doctor/therapist. Trust me you want to invest in finding a good psychologist. I know its expensive but the suffering you endure is far greater. Are you in ontario?

Yes. When I panic I cant breath. My chest feels tight and uncomfortable. They are all symptoms of panic. Do you like exercising? Even doing 1/2 to 1 hr will burn some of that adrenaline and release happy hormones.

And no he doesn't specialize in Cbt. he's actually a gp psychotherapist so a MEd doctor with psychotherapy training so he's covered by ohip. He's okay he's helped a bit. The one I'm going to start seeing says she does a bit more talk therapy and incorporates other stuff so well see. I'm also hopefully starting a cbt group therapy so hoping that helps.

Lol. Thank you! I had a panic attack tonight and cried I got frustrated. I've been getting this insane heat feeling in my chest while having an attack. It feels like my chest is on fire and then my throat feels tight which of course leads to the oh no I can't breathe feeling. Did you ever experience this? 
It sucks because sometimes I feel it coming on and I'm like nope I'm fine and it goes away and then sometimes I get them and I'm like nope this is the one that's going to send me to emergency!

Okay I was trying to be smart and I messed up the second part :*( It should not read external attribution error because it is not an error in your situation - it is actually correct/true. Gosh. My brain just blew a fuse.

Dont internalize. Dont use it as evidence that your anxiety is hopeless (internal attribution error) when it is a reflection of their incompetence (external attribution error). I do the same thing lol thats how I know.

 Does he or she specialize in cbt ? Dont worry. The first person sucked. I knew more about anxiety than she did. Everytime I asked a question that was difficult, shes like lets park it and never come back to it. Lol. Anyway the one that I am seeing is very helpful.

To be honest not the greatest. He has given me a few strategies but it isn't helping so much. I find that sometimes he seems stuck on what to do with me or at least that's how it seems. Like he feels he has run out of things to say to me I guess. So I am going to start seeing someone else next Friday and hoping she helps.

Youre so welcome. I remember you said you were seeing a psychologist. How is that going?
