Sweaty palms, heart racing, breathing heavily, a feeling of impending doom. Being absolutely certain you are either having a heart attack and are going to die, or convinced you are going crazy.
You are one of the many that has experienced a panic attack.
A panic attack cannot kill you and it won’t make you go insane.
A panic attack is merely a physical response to a perceived threat. Your body is responding to a message it has received from your brain causing it to trigger your “fight or flight” response. This “fight or flight” response is completely natural and is designed to keep you alive in an emergency situation.
Here’s the trouble
The instinctive response to a panic attack is to try and “fight” it to make it go away or to pretend it’s not there and run from it (“flight”). Trying to suppress your natural “fight or flight” response by adding more of the same thing to it is not going to make it go away, it will only make it worse!
What do I do?
Panic attacks will and do come to an end.
The best way to stop them from happening is finding out why your brain is warning you about danger that isn’t there. High anxiety levels can bring on panic attacks, for example.
Hypnotherapy and other kinds of therapy can help you in understanding why panic attacks happen and they can help you to make sure they don’t happen again.
Going to see someone for help can be incredibly scary, it can even bring on a panic attack!
It’s not uncommon for people to cancel their therapy appointment because they are scared of what might happen or they are worried of what will happen if they get a panic attack during the session.
