Most people will say to look on the bright side sometimes that’s not alway that helpful so we can look at it in a different way.
What I mean is: I have a test tomorrow and I don’t think I’m going to pass.
The way we change that up is…… I have test tomorrow this could have been worse if I hadn’t revised, if I had that really horrible teacher , if i didn’t know the teacher, if I didn’t know anybody in the room, if i had to go to the dentist instead.
What I’m trying to get at is there are always bad situations but there are always worse so next time you’re dreading something think of all the worst possible situations you could be in I bet there will always be at least one worst thing you can think of.

This post is literally to explain what a panic attack is. This post is another in the series.
A panic attack is an experience of sudden and intense anxiety. Panic attacks can have physical symptoms, including shaking, feeling confused or disoriented, rapid heartbeats, dry mouth, sweating, dizziness and chest pain. Other symptoms from my experience can include choking like your throat is closing up.
The symptoms of a panic attack normally peak within 10 minutes. Most episodes (attacks) will last for between five minutes and half an hour.
Phobia sufferers will try to avoid whatever is causing their fear, but in some cases this can seriously restrict their movements and actions. It’s important not to let your fear of panic attacks control you, you need to control it.Panic attacks always pass and the symptoms are not a sign of anything harmful happening. It’s important not to restrict your movements and daily activities.
During an attack you experience a whole range of frightening symptoms, and worrying thoughts may go through your mind. Many people have a sense of impending disaster, and think they’re going to faint, lose control or even die.
You may hear the words panic disorder that is exactly the same as a panic attack except that you get them quite often. Some people will get the occasional panic attack and they are completely normal and nothing will happen in the end.

This is the first in hopefully a sort of series and I will start off with my personal fears and worries, as this website wouldn’t exist if they hadn’t of happened.
My personal fear was health ,after being in a worrying situation and being the only one in the room at the time, luckily I went to get someone straight away and that person was fine in the end but the memory is still in my mind.
I was very , and still have the fears but they are going now, scared of the whole health aspect of life. It started off with ‘chest pains’ which weren’t they were just a panic symptom, but I was scared I was going to have a heart attack and the media doesn’t help with constant stories about it almost everyday. I went to see my GP and she explained to me that I’d have to be at least 30 to be the youngest person ever to have one. After that I haven’t really had the ‘chest pains’ since then. I’m still a little on edge about it but not so much about the pains.
Second of all, was my fear of not being able to breathe. I was nervous about that for a while but not really bad t would come and go. Now its just a really small thought in the back of my mind that only really pops up in burst occasionally.
Third was probably my fear of having a bad allergic reaction. I have never had a reaction but just the ‘what if?’ scared me. I’m still a bit scared and am getting better but I find eating food from restaurants and anywhere where someone who I know hasn’t prepared the food scares me.
I think that my fourth panic was ‘what if I choke?’. Admittedly this is probably the one I’m still most scared about. Like all of them I’m getting better and am conquering them slowly.
I don’t think all of them are going to completely go away but they won’t ever be a significant as they were when the first started cropping up. I will update you if I remember any more and will tell you if get any more. Don’t forget to email me at email@example.com leave a comment in the section below.
