By attacking the attacks before it becomes a real problem, you are not necessarily curing yourself of anxiety, panic or panic attacks but you are preventing it from becoming an unmanageable problem.
Many people will try to tell you that they can cure your panic, your anxiety, your depression or any other unpleasant feeling you may have. The truth is these feelings are not curable; they are natural feelings that are part of our lives. They tend to crop up when the situation warrants.
Your brother dies, you get depressed, you lose your job and you get anxious. This is the way things work. How they don't work is that you get in panic when you're in the produce section because you're unsure about what to make for dinner or you have anxious feelings when sitting at home with your family or getting your nails done at the salon. These are unusual and unnatural times for anxiety to crop up and for attacks to strike.
Controlling these types of reactions is the focus. There are tools you to address some of the physical and emotional reactions that are cropping up at inconvenient times. But first, a little here about some of the disorders, phobias and conditions that can lead to such overwhelming anxiety and disruption of your life.
A panic attack is a terrifying and horrible experience. It takes both a physical and mental toll on your life. As your chest starts to tighten, your breathing becomes more labored and your heart starts to palpitate, you wonder what's happening.
Your stomach tightens, your muscles ache, you start to get dizzy and light headed. The disorientation and physical sensations coursing through your body are alarming. Are you dying? Are you having a heart attack? Is this the end?
These thoughts race through your mind as you struggle to gain control. Imagine if this happened to you frequently or even several times a day. How could you live a normal life? The answer is you can't.
What's worse is the anticipatory fear of having a panic attack can be even more paralyzing. They are so scary that you can spend the rest of the time when you aren't having an attack, worrying about when you're going to have one.
The fear prevents you from driving because what if this happened in the car? The fear prevents you from going to dinner with friends because it could happen while you're out. The fear prevents you from taking your children to the park because what would happen if you get in panic while out with your kids.
Soon the worry so interferes with your life that your life is unrecognizable. You are afraid all the time, unable to do things, distracted when interacting with others and unable to concentrate.About the Author:
