Inside a Panicked Mind

Panic attacks are sudden feelings of intense and alarming fear which can trigger very serious physical and mental reactions. 

I suffer from them often, just today as a matter of fact. 

During the onset of a panic attack a person may react with any combination of the following symptoms: intrusive thoughts, excessive worrying, irritability, loss of control, dizziness, restlessness, feeling like they are on the edge, negative thoughts, heart palpitations, difficulty breathing, inability to concentrate, nausea, stomach aches, headaches, tightness in chest, muscle tension, sweating or chills, loss of appetite, numbness, shakiness, fight or flight mode, a sense of impending doom or immediate danger. Blend them together and alarm bells go off. 

And in case you’ve ever truly wondered what it sounds like inside a panicked mind, take a listen. https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiOFmRvJ0Ze/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

Give a thumbs up if you can relate.
