I intentionally kept this work back, till we might learned more about the way to combat Anxiety and Panic Episodes. To have written this first could have quite clearly been met up with the re-action, “Well, so what? What now? All this sounds terrifying. What do we do if we suffer one of these attacks?” By explaining it now, we’ve learned how best to deal with these horrors and may now chill out and see what used to cause our misery. It isn’t too surprising to learn that Panic Attacks are caused by high Anxiety. Well, that is fine, but what’s Anxiety?

The person that suffers the condition on a regular basis, potentially with occasional Panic Episodes thrown in, will be shocked by the experience and suffer symptoms such as problems with vision, dizziness, shivering and sensations of breathlessness.
