Welcome, Friend!

First, Don’t Panic is dedicated to those who have anxieties, panic or fear about anything in their daily life. I have GAD and PTSD, so I know where you’re coming from, and I’m here to listen, share, and help. If you feel anxiety about your job, your marriage, your future, money, health… or anything at all, you’ve come to the right place.

With anxieties, fear and panic, many of us become depressed and dysfunctional. This site is to help those of us who are truly worried, and frozen with fear, stand up and take control of ourselves. Control what we can control – our reactions. Become that carefree, easy going spirit we strive for.

We employ several methodologies to achieve this:

  • Articles of Real Life Problems and How to Help Yourself Get Through Them
  • Meditation
  • Interactive Anxiety Worksheets
  • Group Support
  • Visualizations
  • Understanding the Psychology behind panic
  • Physiological Benefits of calming techniques
  • Other Resources for Help

Welcome to FirstDontPanic.com.  Thank you for visiting.

Please note, while I could be called a Professional Worrier on and off throughout my lifetime, I am not a mental health professional. Everything I say and suggest on this site is as a regular lay person, and in no way should be substituted for advice from your care giver. Use common sense, and enjoy this site at your own risk.

    so glad to run across this site. I have left over thoughts that my mother put in my head as a young girl.She has been gone for over 15 years and at times it still hits me hard.
    she told me that I would pay for all of this through out my life. When something happens, like when I broke my back in a bad car accident. I wondered what I did to deserve this……… kept thinking. still can’t get it thru my head its not how it happens. but then i believe it is real. My anxiety is real, and then I include my children and their pain to be my fault.
    I remember telling a dear friend of mine my actuality of being punished. I was in my 40′s at the time. I thought it was normal and how life works. I thought every parent tells their kids this. BUT i didnt, and wondered if this decision was worse on my children then if I had told them they were getting pay back from all my mistakes..
    i want to shake it off cuz I know better, but i also can’t deprogram my mind.
