  8. Panic or anxiety attacks are really scary. The first time I had one, I had no idea what it was and thought I was having a heart attack. I couldn’t breathe, my heart was beating so fast and I couldn’t get it under control. The longer it went on, the more stressed out and anxious I became. Medication helped for awhile but we had to treat the underlying reasons for the panic attack which took a long time.

    I suffered panic attacks as a child. Every day when my dad dropped me off at school, I would start to feel an extreme fear of being left alone. I would run after my dad as he drove away. I was fortunate that my guidance counselor recognized the symptoms and discussed it with my parents. I still have panic attacks as an adult, but not as intense as the ones I had as a child.

  34. I’ve definitely had my fair share of panic attacks and this hit the nail on the head. It actually helps to know what’s going on because part of the scary part is the feeling of not knowing what’s going on with your body.

  35. I have only experienced ONE panic attack in my entire life thus far and it was insane. I had NEVER felt anything like what I felt that day and I truly hope to NEVER feel that ever again. I feel so sad for those who experience anxiety on the regular, I can’t even imagine what life must be like what that!

  36. You did an excellent job sharing what it is like to have a panic attack. Many people do not recognize it while it is happening to them and it can be overwhelming. Seeking professional help is very important.

  37. thanks for the ways to stop panic attack – I will try all of it. Im having these issue for years now but behavioral/ mental health is not covered by my insurance and its expensive to seek help.

  38. My MIL has panic attacks. The slightest thing that worries her easily progresses to panic attacks. Her family dismisses is as all in her head. I’ve tried talking them into letting her see a doctor but sadly, most families here in our country don’t take these things seriously.

    I have never had experience panic attack even anxiety maybe because I have people who always reminded at me that everything will be alright and they are supporting me in every way or path that I and going to take.

  40. I used to have this feeling – then my boyfriend always told me to “calm down” because nothing will do good if I always worry.
    Then I learned to let go and take my time – now I can deal with it properly 😀

  41. I have some friends, whom I know are suffering from this. Maybe raising awareness, by sharing this will help people understand them or even help them somehow.

  42. Often we do not realize that when we are experiencing panic attacks but now I know what symptoms can categorize into an attack. I neglected it thinking that it must be because I have a habit of freaking out at trivial things. I shall try out medication and picture being myself happy in such situations

  43. I know i’ve been here a few times. Modern life is very stressful and demanding. The fight or flight response is constantly being triggered but then we have nothing to release the adrenaline into. I find passive aggressive types the worst to deal with and the most to create stress and anxiety in the people around them. I think we could learn a thing or two from the wise people in the East.

  44. Understanding things we can’t see a cause for in others is hard. We accept physical illness we can’t see, we should all try to be a little more understanding of those mental struggles as well.

  45. I usually suffer panic attacks during social interactions in person (cuz I have social anxiety) and the last time I suffered from these was during my exam weeks.

  46. I’ve suffered from panic attacks off and on since my twenties. My first one landed me in the emergency room – I thought I was having a heart attack. After 3 days of tests, it was determined that it was a panic attack. Just knowing what it was seemed to make it easier to deal with the next time it happened.
    About a year ago, I had one out of nowhere, riding in the backseat of a friend’s sports car – I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough. Made him pull over and let me out – I walked the couple of miles back home, just glad to be able to breathe!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  47. Personally, I’ve never had a panic attack, but I think it’s great to be aware so that maybe one day I can offer assistance or support to someone who is. The post provided some insightful information about extreme anxiety that can lead to panic attacks.

  49. I have experienced panic attacks I do now know when they are going to surface and how to deal with them but before I got to know myself boy did I have a hard time. Thanks for the information and knowing someone else knows makes things better

  50. I know my daughter’s mom has had to deal with panic attacks quite frequently. She needed medication for immediate symptoms and then therapy for long-term issues. But I had a friend’s brother it happened to and it permanently changed him, which was sad.

  51. Panic or anxiety attacks can be so debilitating that one would be wise to seek medical attention for them. You did a brilliant job of shedding light on the subject.
