Stress-Management Are you the person who has suffered the experience of having panic attacks?  If so, you should understand that there are different types of panic attacks.  The attacks that may have occurred in your life could be due to varying situations that have taken place with you personally.  It is also important for you to know how to tell the difference, why it occurred, and any treatment plans which would best prevent another attack from affecting you. 1). Random Panic Attacks:  This type of attack seems to .e out of nowhere, often without warning.  Usually it is an isolated incident:  For example it could be that you have to make your first ever speech in front of a large audience.  Your nervous system be.es highly agitated, as you think about the fear of standing in front of other people.  It is something that you are not used to doing, mainly because you’ve never done it before.  As the time for your speech draws closer, you experience butterflies in your stomach, tightness in your chest, and sweaty palms just thinking about your up.ing speech.  Usually the random attack is but an isolated incident.  The episode will not last long, and will resolve itself quickly. 2). Situational Panic Attacks: This type of attack usually occurs because of something going on that an individual is directly involved in.  The situation could be that you, once again, have to travel on an airplane as part of your job, or be in a social situation where you will be in close contact with that relative who you just cannot stand.  Situational panic attacks are often more severe than random attacks.  In the latter, you fear this up.ing event to a higher level of anxiety. For reasons that you fully cannot understand you hate flying.  Or, you cannot stand that mother-in-law of yours because. . . .e to think about it, you just don’t know why.  But, just thinking about the fact that she will be in the same room with you for 6 hours sends your nerve endings nearly through the roof.   Depending on the level of anxiety with this type of attack, the episode may last longer and be harder to end.   One key suggestion to help you with that fussy old mother-in-law of yours would be the following:  If she makes some sarcastic remark towards you, count slowly, (very slowly) to 5.  Breathe in as you count.  Then, exhale your breath slowly to a count of 8.  Focus on something other than this individual.  This may relax you.  Another solution would be to picture, in your mind, this individual in a .ical way.  This will relieve your anxiety just thinking about her in that fashion.  In your mind, picturing this individual with a red, clown-like nose, (for example) would train your mind to view her as actually being more non-threatening than you have believed in the past. 3). Reminder Panic Attacks:  These types of attacks occur when a person finds his or herself in the same exact situation as when he/she had a previous panic attack or traumatic experience.  You dread getting on a plane, for a work-related business trip.  Unlike the situational type of attack when you can’t stand getting on a plane for an unknown reason; on this occasion you fully understand why.  On your last trip only 5 weeks ago, the plane that you were on encountered engine trouble.  Although the pilot, due to his/her superior skill at his/her job landed the plane safely; at the time you had an attack thinking that you would perish when the plane crashed.   These thoughts of your previous trip swirl through your mind.  You relive in your mind the voice of the pilot .ing on the inter. stating the problem.  You can picture the flight attendants again, instructing the passengers on how to brace themselves for a possible crash landing.  Like a movie occurring inside your head, you go through this scene minute by minute as it happened 5 weeks ago.  Irrationally, you believe the same thing will happen to yet you again, (although statistically the odds of this happening would be close to zero, especially as it is your very next flight since the incident).  Only this time, you irrationally fear that you will die, no question about it.  Your nervous system, (the level of stress and anxiety) nearly goes over the edge and your brain be.es over-stimulated with irrational thoughts.  You have another panic attack even before you set foot in the airport. Fortunately, this type of attack would be fairly easy to avoid altogether; only if you prepare yourself ahead of time, however.  In preventing this type of attack, you must focus on the positive.  In the plane example above, tell yourself that flying is considered one of the safest modes of transportation anywhere, (and much safer than driving to a destination).  Airline pilots have a much higher level of skill-set than the reckless drivers that you encounter on today’s highways.  Statistically there are significantly higher number of highway traffic accidents, (and fatalities) .pared to airplane crashes.   Airline pilots, as part of their very job requirements, routinely practice their skills on modern flight simulation programs.  In these .puter simulation programs, pilots are exposed to sudden and random situations that they could encounter in real life, (engine failure, flying through severe storms, taking/landing in wind shear, etc.).  Airline pilots who fly today’s jets are highly trained professionals in their craft.  Focus on this ideal, and your level of stress will lower.  On your next trip, you should also consider bringing your portable listening device and ear phones.  Listen to soothing, Classical music.  I guarantee that your level of anxiety will lower, and your fear about stepping on that plane will simply go away.
