Overcoming Panic Attacks as a Man

Dealing with panic attacks has been a struggle for me as a 29-year-old man. It’s tough because there’s this stigma that men should be tough and not show vulnerability, but I’ve come to realize that seeking help is not a sign of weakness. I’ve found that talking to a therapist and learning coping mechanisms has really made a difference for me. I also make sure to practice self-care and prioritize my mental health. It’s a daily challenge, but I’ve learned to not let panic attacks define me. I encourage other men to seek help and not suffer in silence. It’s okay to not be okay, and seeking help is a brave step towards healing.
