panic attacks

A panic attack is a form of fear that will usually strike suddenly and without any warning. It can produce a terrifying barrage of symptoms, including a strong conviction that something dreadful is about to happen. Although it might seem as if it had come right out of the blue, as a lead up, you will have imagined a bad outcome to the situation in which you had found yourself. This could have happened on either a conscious or an unconscious level. Either way, the entire episode will have been triggered by your own mind, whether or not you realised it. read more ,,,

Avoidance is a common response to anxiety and panic, and can even be seen as one of their primary symptoms. After all, why would you want to do something, or go somewhere, that could perhaps trigger again the unpleasant (or even terrifying) feelings that it triggered previously? Staying away would certainly provide a degree of relief, in the short term at least. read more ,,,
