Talk to someone online about Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are extraordinarily uncomfortable. You can feel like the world is closing in on you or like you are going to have a heart attack. People who have never experienced a panic attack have a really hard time understanding just how scary they can be. Panic attacks can be triggered by certain situations like being in a crowded room, on a plane, or out in public. Or, they might seemingly just happen out of the blue. Regardless, they feel the same way – quickened breathing, sweating, rapid heart rate, and palpable fear. Panic attacks trigger our flight or fight system. We release adrenaline in our system that causes these symptoms. We then interpret these symptoms as a result of some impending doom; rather than recognizing that they are a natural consequence of adrenaline pouring in. The good news is that the effect of adrenaline decreases and we’ll naturally go back to our normal state. However, that said, even with this knowledge panic attacks can be completely overwhelming. To help make them more manageable, we’ve designed a help guide that you can find here. Additionally, we’ve found that it can often be helpful to talk to someone about panic attacks. We here at 7 cups have overcome or are in the process of overcoming anxiety and we’d be happy to support you on your journey. Please know that you are not alone. If you’d like someone to support you, then please connect with one of our listeners below.
