Jenny, a 21-year-old nurse, has mild asthma. As an 8th grader she watched her best friend die of a severe asthma attack. Ever since then she has worried that shortness of breath signifies an impending episode of suffocation and death. When she has difficulty breathing, she often experiences severe panic attacks during which she is convinced she is dying. She was referred to psychology after numerous ER visits, unsuccessful medication trials, and relaxation training. She frequently misses work because of her panic symptoms and is in danger of being fired if she takes any more sick days.
