How to Stop OCD Thoughts
For those of you who have no experience with anxiety attack before but who wants to know what they are, anxiety attacks is a situation that can be roughly described as such: When you are attack by high anxiety, firstly, you will sense a sudden overwhelming and weird feelings, when the sensations starts to heighten, you will feel as if you are trapped in your own small world, bombarded with repetitive irrational fears. Your mind will be full of unfounded worries, doubts and stressful images and thoughts. Your body will starts to shiver, tremble, sweat profusely, your heart beat will start to race and you will feel the sensations of hot and cold flushes and paresthesia (pin and needles) on your limbs.
This episode of anxiety attack can happen anywhere and anytime without any logical reasons. It can happen “internally” to the extent that your colleagues or friends around you might not notice. If you are lucky, the attacks will subside by its own after a few minutes of creating havoc to you. But if you are not, the anxiety attack can escalate into panic disorder. When this happens, people around you will definitely start to notice. You will sort of “gasping for air”(in reality you are actually hyperventilating). You will feel that you are going to faint or die and you may even feel like you are losing your mind.
Usually, after the first attack, your mind will start to be constantly worrying about the next attack. You will always be on the “alert mode” to prepare yourself for the next anxiety attack. Unfortunately for most people, this constant worries are going to be the one to trigger their next attack. However, no matter how well I describe these frightening experience on paper, mere words cannot express exactly how debilitating anxiety attack can be. Only the sufferers will be able to understand it fully.
If you have anyone in the family or even your close friends with these symptoms, you should know by now how depressed or sad they can be. As their close associate, you can help them by giving moral support or become a listening ear to their worries. You should also give them encouragements or words of advice that can liven up their spirits to face the world but the most important thing is, you must help them to get the cure for their conditions as soon as possible.
