I am currently involved with a similar female patient, who
is getting moderately better with a cognitively inspired
behaviour progeramme. At least her panics have stopped, but
the swallowing is still a problem though much improved. Her
personality is well defended, very controlled and not
easily available. All cemented in a complementary
relationship. I would be interested in hearing what replies
you are getting.
