If they are bad enough to disturb your living a normal life, go to a psychiatrist that treats panic disorders. There is a difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist. Be sure to choose the first, as you may need medication. A "Get Well" book is not enough. Give your problems to the Lord, too. What if their parent can't afford it? huh? That's all wrong!!! Anxiety and panic attacks are primarily due to an imbalance of dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters in the brain. Cognitive or psychotherapy is typically unnecessary and ineffective with these disorders. Best-evidence protocols call for starting medications like Zoloft or Effexor, while using benzodiazepines (Ativan, Xanax) as a "bridge" until these former meds take effect. Reiteration: you cannot "talk yourself down" from such an attack. These medications will dramatically improve you quality of life.
