New York, NY � December 20, 2007 � Can panic attacks keep someone from doing everyday activities? Will the pressures of conforming to a family's standards prove too much to handle for some people?

On this episode of True life, we'll meet three young people struggling to overcome their panic disorder so they can live normal lives.

4pm ET/PT - True Life: I'm An Alcoholic - What if every time you took a sip of alcohol you couldn't stop drinking until it was hard to walk, talk, or even think?
