It starts as a little tingly feeling in the back of your brain.
A warm sensation. On its own, it can almost feel nice for a second. But the warmth turns red-hot, it burns and starts spreading. And it reaches your heart and your fingers and your legs, and you know that you’re dying. It squeezes you like a vise. “This is the end”, you think. Heart pounding out of your chest, you can’t breathe. “I’m losing control, am I going to pass out? I’m going to die! I’m going insane!” You grasp for a cohesive thought that will bring you out of this state, but you can’t focus. And one of the worst parts – the fear that builds asking yourself “when is the next time this happens?”
Panic Attacks aren’t dangerous in of themselves, but try telling yourself that while experiencing one. It’s an extremely scary and, often times, traumatic experience. And not uncommon, either. But when you suffer from panic attacks you don’t see the others around you that share your pain. Because panic attacks arise and abate rather quickly, so you don’t catch many strangers having them. This can make you feel like you’re one of the few struggling with this. We treat anxiety and panic all the time. In fact, it’s one of the most common conditions and symptoms we treat. And we don’t just push a medication your way and tell you to figure it out. While medication is an important part to healing, we educate you on how to heal yourself , so you can be less dependant on medication in the future, and also just live to your full potential without having these symptoms weigh you down. We don’t simply put a band-aid on the problem, but rather we tackle this from multiple angles so that you can defeat this on your own.
