    This article should state this “could” work as a preventative measure. Being someone who has suffered from both panic and anxiety I guarantee this will not aid someone who has entered an acute state.

    Even as a preventative measure it takes many repetitions and positive meditations (on the order of 5-10 brief exercises per day) for this strategy to work or possibly one long 45 minute meditation experience where you reinact the event in your mind with a positive ending.

    The information in the article is relevant but it over simplified how an anxiety suffere might actually use the information.

    For years I have watched my life slowly shut down socially due to agoraphobia and panic attacks that land you in hospital because you are sure you are going to die of a heart attack. I have been taught methods through therapy, from controlled exposure through to catastrophizing and how to avoid doing it. I also agree with the above poster, that this article is very generalized in it’s approach. For me, in most situations, what I think, does actually happen. No it is not self fulfilling prophecy, no more than having a depressive episode is not my bipolar swinging.

    I agree with what you have written, but believe it’s application is better aimed at a member of the general public rather than those of us who come and read these articles because we have run out of angles to try to get us through today.
