A permanent healing of panic attacks

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Trending - October 21, 2020

During my sophomore year of high school, I began to experience debilitating panic attacks that would sometimes be accompanied by lightheadedness and nausea. I hadn’t ever had problems with anxiety before, but I was dealing with a lot of school-related stress, as well as some difficult personal issues. The panic attacks were scary and confusing, especially since I’d never faced anything like this before.

I did immediately begin praying about this problem using what I’d learned in the Christian Science Sunday School. Our class had talked about and memorized a Bible passage that says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (II Timothy 1:7 ). It was reassuring to understand that I couldn’t actually be subject to fear, and I turned to this idea frequently. But I also often found it difficult to pray in the middle of a panic attack, and the physical symptoms scared me.
