Your advice about panic disorder is dead-on, 100 percent correct. I have beat agoraphobia twice in my life. The first time was at the age of 24 with a therapist's help. And the second time was 20 years later with no outside help, using mind tools and visualization and positive thinking imput. It is the only way to beat it. You are so correct.
