I am sure most of you have heard of the fight or flight response as an explanation for one of the root causes of panic attacks. Have you made the connection between this response and the unusual sensations you experience during and after a panic attack episode? Anxiety is a response to a danger or threat. It is so named because all of its effects are aimed toward either fighting or fleeing from the danger. Thus, the sole purpose of anxiety is to protect the individual from harm. This may seem ironic given that you no doubt feel your anxiety is actually causing you great harm… perhaps the most significant of all the causes of panic attacks.
Anxiety is a built-in mechanism to protect us from danger. Interestingly, it is a mechanism that protects us but does not harm us.
