I have been a member of No Panic for 4 years although I’ve suffered a general anxiety disorder for many years in one form or another. It’s an illness that we’ve got to accept together and its groups like No Panic which helps us to realize that were not alone in our suffering. We all worry about being socially acceptable, the thoughts of being criticised or being made to look silly in public frightens many of us out of all proportion. Our minds then focus on this weakness sending us into a state of panic with so many depleting effects, I.e. panic attacks, sleepless nights, physical reaction, etc.
