When a person has panic attacks, his or her entire family is affected.
If someone in your family has panic attacks, you may feel frustrated,
overworked (because you have to take over his or her responsibilities), or
socially isolated because the person restricts family activities. These
feelings are common.
Family therapy, a type of counseling that involves the
entire family, may help.
