Panic Disorder with agoraphobia

  • “When Mandy gave birth to her second child, the birth was unexpectedly complicated, but the baby came home 3 weeks later.  One day, after her husband came home from work, Mandy raced down to the local supermarket alone, so she could quickly pick up a few items for dinner. That was when the first attack hit her. She couldn't breathe; her heart raced and felt like it would explode. Mandy's attacks continued to occur and Mandy quickly learned to avoid any situation where another attack could occur. Her daughter is now in school and Mandy is unable to take her there and relies on a friendly neighbor to take her daughter to school and back. Mandy seldom leaves the house and only in the company of her husband. Mandy has developed Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.”
