Don’t Let Anxiety Attacks Rule

By Brian Sloan

The first time it will certainly catch you off guard, as a sensation starts to come over your body that you will not recognize. It may be a fear, a rapid heartbeat, your face may feel flush, your hands may tingle, and you may become out of breath. You may feel hot flashes or feel like you’re going crazy. You usually will have an urge to run away or escape the situation that you’re in. It can be sheer terror. However, usually there is no danger at all.

You may be one of the millions of unfortunate ones that have experienced some of the things I just mentioned. And you also may recognize them as symptoms of a panic or anxiety attack. You may have had a fearful and startling event that caused the attack. However, the frustrating thing is that, many times, they come out of the blue and we just don’t know where they came from or how they got us to a level 10 of panic. It’s a scary feeling. It’s a helpless feeling. I have been there, and many of you have too.

“Oh, good grief, Greg, you’re talking about some crazy people now.” Nope. Not the case. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, in any given year almost two and a half million people can have panic disorder. And these are people from all walks of life. But, as I see the trend continue, I wonder how many thousands or millions more deal with this disorder and are embarrassed to let it be known. Therefore, I believe the numbers could be substantially higher.

Well, it was a long time ago when I had my last full on anxiety attack. But, I can remember those things well. I remember the terror of those intense moments, not understanding what was going on, but just being afraid – fear like you can’t imagine – and you don’t know why. Then, what’s worse is that you spend many days, weeks, or months fearing that it will occur again at any time. You live in fear and dread of that moment. It’s the type of thing that may keep people in their homes more and keep them from engaging in the fun social events that they should be attending. If for nothing else, that’s the very reason that you should do everything in your power not to let panic or anxiety win in your life.

Well, how about some good news? Today we find ourselves with more information, more treatment options, and the medical and psychological community are much more experienced with dealing with anxiety attacks than years ago. There are even some great programs online. So, if you find yourself dealing with this aggravating and frightening disorder, don’t let it take the fun and enjoyment away from your life. Find your way out through professional help. See your doctor. See a counselor or psychologist trained in this field, or perhaps a well trained psychiatrist who might even suggest medication for a time. But, please don’t let this thing win! Sometimes issues of anxiety can bring embarrassment, and they shouldn’t. However, if they do, don’t you dare let that stop you from getting the proper help, facing this condition and winning!

Please don’t let panic or anxiety hold you hostage in your life. You don’t deserve to live a life of fear. Get help for your anxiety or panic attacks and don’t wait any longer to do so. As stated, there are many professionals who can help. There are also some well trained ministers as well. Just remember that there are millions of other people who are dealing with the same issues. And also remember that you don’t have to continue to deal with this condition indefinitely. Don’t settle for a lesser quality of life than you deserve. Get busy and get help if that is what you need. Say a firm “no” to panic and anxiety, and especially those attacks. You can win. You ARE a winner!
