I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for five years. Outside of being put on an emotion numbing pill from the Doctor, it is difficult to fight them. I now have a service dog. Being around the dog is calming in and of itself. She is being trained to alert me prior to the panic attack so that I only have to take the medication to prevent it, and not all other times. I bought lavender essential oils for deep breathing, have massages, take walks, jog and exercise regularly. Sometimes non of the above work. The dog definitely does.
