Anxiety Panic Hub

There are five major Anxiety Disorders and it is not unusual for people to experience symptoms of more than one Anxiety Disorder at the same time. e.g. a person with panic disorder may also have symptoms of social anxiety and/or some symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder.

Panic Disorder is the fear of having a spontaneous panic attack. The intensity of the attack can be extremely severe and many people feel they are having a heart attack and/or are going to die or are going insane. It is not unusual for people to become fearful and chronically anxious about having another one.

Social Anxiety is the experience of fear, anxiety and/or panic in social situations where people think they may embarrass themselves or may make a fool of themselves in some way.

Acute Stress Disorder /Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is the experience, or witness of, or confrontation with an event or events that involved actual or threatened death, or serious injury, or threat of physical injury of self or others. While people with PTSD can experience panic attacks, the major feature of PTSD is the reliving of the event/s through dreams and/or or nightmares or flashbacks.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is the experience of obsessive, unwanted thoughts and/or compulsive behaviours that may include rituals which can markedly interfere with day to day living. This can include repetitive behaviours such as cleaning, checking, counting, repeating words silently, or hand washing, e.g. a person who has a fear of contamination (from germs) may wash their hands repeatedly.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder is persistence and excessive anxiety or worry which is experienced for six months or more about events or activities which may or may not happen.

Whether it be panic attacks and/or anxiety or an anxiety disorder such as Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Generalised Anxiety Disorder, the various fears and symptoms keep people trapped no matter no matter how hard they try to break free.

Their approach to recovery from panic attacks, anxiety or an anxiety disorder is meditation and a mindfulness cognitive technique.

Meditation is the oldest cognitive technique in the world. It teaches them to go beyond their chattering, anxious thoughts and can lead them to a place of mental quiet and peacefulness.

It lays the foundation for the development mindfulness as a cognitive based technique that can be used throughout the day. This enables people to learn to see how much of their fear and anxiety is being created. Which in turn teaches people to go beyond their fears, and into recovery.

Recovery is a step by step process. If they have been diagnosed as having a panic anxiety related disorder the first step is to fully understand the disorder and to accept the diagnosis.
