Hi Melanie and welcome!
I'm also from Yorkshire but spend most of my time across the border now
I too have panic attacks, and have to organise my life to avoid triggers as far as possible. It took many years before I realised that I had autism and that this was the cause - I get stressed very easily due to autistic sensitivities - busy places, unexpected happenings, broken routines, awkward people, loud or sudden noises, bright lights, etc. Do any of these cause your panic attacks?
