What Is Happening To Me and the Anxiety Attack Cure?
To understand panic attacks,
let's look at the way panic affects you:

These thoughts naturally aggravate the fear and can actually make the physical symptoms worse, as well as convince you that something terrible is about to happen.
So, a cycle begins: the physical symptoms are followed by fear, which leads to catastrophic thoughts, which leads to greater fear, which leads to more marked physical symptoms, and so on. You may already realize that your thoughts are alarming you and making your anxiety worse.
However, what many people don’t realize is that what they’ve become so terrified of is their own physical sensations, and so they try to avoid them in order to stay calm and in control. It is certainly true that these sensations are distressing, but it is just as true that through understanding and
