Panic And Anxiety
I was just thinking, because I’m fairly sure that I’ve read that there is a difference between the two…Is there a true difference between a panic attack and an anxiety attack?
Does anyone know this answer? I haven’t been following my psychology like I had hoped, since I quit college and everything. I’m not sure if there is a difference between the two.
ABC News Health says that there are both similarities and differences between the two; stating that when the stressor goes away, so does the anxiety attack. But a panic attack is unprovoked.
There’s another blogger, one that I was able to talk to last night, who has some very good information on anxiety. She seems to really know her psychology. She’s very sweet.
All this information really makes me wonder what’s going on with me. Am I having panic attacks or anxiety attacks? When I have an attack, I don’t feel like I’m going to die. Though, my last two attacks were unprovoked and I felt as though I couldn’t breathe. What is going on with me?
Of course, I should really give my therapist a call, I just can’t afford it right now. I should probably be back on my medications, I just haven’t made the appointment…UGH!
Some days, I’m afraid to leave my house, I’m too nervous to answer the phone. Right now, I’m nervous about calling the doctor to say that I need something for my anxiety…Or that I need help with my anxiety. I’m not helping anything, especially myself.
