Always Trying to ‘Save’ People

What Does it Look Like?

In this medical blog post, I will share with you some of the things that are happening in your body when you have an anxiety attack. These symptoms may include:

You feel anxious or nervous all the time. You don’t want to do anything because you’re afraid something bad might happen.

Your heart beats faster than normal and sometimes even stops beating completely. You experience intense fear, panic, or terror. You become irritable and angry. You lose control over your actions.

These symptoms are not just limited to those suffering from anxiety attacks but they can occur for anyone experiencing any kind of emotional distress such as grief, anger, sadness, depression or other emotions that cause them to feel overwhelmed by their feelings.

The reason why these symptoms occur is due to the fact that your brain is sending out signals to your body which causes the physical symptoms. The problem with these symptoms is that they are temporary and they only last for a short period of time.

However, what happens after these temporary symptoms disappear?

Well, then you start feeling worse again! This cycle continues until one day you can no longer take it anymore and you snap. As a result, you are now feeling the most dreadful feeling of all which is hopelessness.

How Does It Affect You?

These types of feelings affect people in different ways. If you’re someone who finds comfort in religion, then you may have a stronger relationship with your religious beliefs and such religious feelings can bring you some sense of calmness. Other people turn to drugs or alcohol because they want to find a way to numb themselves from feeling these symptoms. Whatever it may be, people will go through great lengths to try and mask or overcome these feelings. In reality, there is no actual cause for these feelings. They are just a consequence of your brain chemistry. You don’t need to feel bad about yourself because of them since they’re beyond your control.

Can You Overcome It?

Of course it is always possible to overcome these feelings with the right treatment plan. Many people have done it before and so can you. Speak with your physician about different treatment options that are available to you. There are many different types of medication that can help with these symptoms and counseling has been known to help as well. Many people also find support groups to be a great outlet for overcoming such problems as well. You can overcome these symptoms just like countless others have done before you.
