Anxiety / Panic Attacks
Anxiety is an unrequited response from the brain to particular situations that we may be uncomfortable in. This, for most people, is a daily occurrence. However, for other people, this is a serious issue that disrupts their daily life. Anxiety attacks occur when the anxiety becomes difficult to handle and the brain decides to take a temporary break.
Panic attacks are a similar phenomenon where there is an abrupt feeling of fear and worry that stays for a long time. Anything can set off panic attacks, even social situations that are mildly uncomfortable can lead to a panic attack.
