But….who is this?
This is Himanshu. I want to share my anxiety story with you.
I had been a panic sufferer for a long time- from childhood. I am writing this blog because I have suffered a lot and I realized that people suffer from panic disorder because of lack of appropriate advice and empathy. I want to help you with your fears and try to bring some ease to your life with my very own experiences. You will come to know from my anxiety story.
[I want to talk about the core distress you experience in panic disorder and associated anxiety which is difficult to explain in words and what only psychologists understand ]
[There is much more than just the medical definitions or notions of the feelings and symptoms of panic disorder from the sufferer’s point of view]
[According to my experience medical explanations are the simplest explanations regarding panic disorder]
It might have been a while, you are suffering from Panic Disorder. You might be having your anxiety story.
Let me tell you my anxiety story…
When I had my very first panic attack, I was almost dead with the dread I experienced. I absolutely didn’t know that such kind of fear exists and it can be very disabling. I thought I had a heart attack. Then I went to my physician and he ended up saying it is because of stress or depression. I told him I had no peer pressure except some college examination stress. He prescribed some basic anti-anxiety pills.
The condition did not improve during the next 4-5 months. I started having repeated attacks of fear and discomfort about which there was nobody to explain. That was the most distressing time period of my life. I suffered lightheadedness, physical imbalance, palpitations, and intense fear. All the doctors just said it is stress or depression or anxiety and suggested me to change the lifestyle or keep taking the pills.
I was bewildered by everything that was happening. There was no real appreciation to my questioDoctors even on being medical professionals could not understand what was happening and they were giving me ineffective pieces of advice for such a distressing problem.
I was annoyed because of this pathetic condition.
(This is the reality in many developed countries. Physicians are not capable of helping panic disorder sufferers!)
I began to find the answers on my own.
I started reading psychology and that was the turning point of my anxiety story. I found out what the problem actually was, who are the experts for these problems, what is the actual clinical significance of panic disorder and what is its standard treatment protocol based on latest psychological research and things like that.
That gave me insight and helped me to recover from my problem and lead a confident life.
You are wondering: Is it natural or unnatural?
Probably nobody is able to show you empathy…because they don’t know what anxiety and panic feel like.
