Panic Attack (2)

  • Whether it is because of doctor’s words or sense of security in the hospital. All your symptoms will obviously improve at this time and you feel “saved”.
  • When you experience a panic attack for the first time. What you don’t know is that your body secretes adrenaline in large quantities in order to protect you.
  • Also when you encounter a major dangerous situation. Which makes you have the “fight” or “flee” instinct. It will provide you with strength, speed and response.
  • At the cost of increased heart rate, palpitations, chest tightness, shortness of breath, nausea and other physical symptoms.
  • This is human instinct, and it is just a stress response made by the body to protect you. There is no real harm to you. Unfortunately, although this effective stress response of “fight” or “flee” can protect you.
  • It does not mean it is correct, as it is a spontaneous response. Especially after you are held by negative emotions or shocks for a long time.
  • Which causes your nerves to become disordered. Your “nerves” will incorrectly “believe”. That you are in a dangerous state and make a wrong response. Under the stimulation of certain specific environments and reasons.
  • In fact, if you have understood the mechanism of panic attack. You will not be influenced by misunderstandings at the beginning of each panic attack.
  • You can examine and analyze this feeling. So that you are not frightened or afraid. It is very likely that your panic attacks won’t even start and will go away quickly.
  • The symptoms will not get worse if they don’t go away. It may not be easy to achieve this at first, but as you become more familiar with the mechanism of panic attacks.
  • You can definitely make it, remember! Panic attacks are not terrible, you just need to cut off the “vicious cycle”, it is nothing more than that.
  • When you achieve it the first time, then the second and third time will be easy. For a patient who suffers from frequent panic attacks, three times is enough.

I even doubt whether it will appear again. Of course, what if it does? After all, you are already the winner of this battle. In the face of a loser, how can it harm you?

Panic attack (3)

  • I have done much research on the coping methods of panic attacks. And have summarized various methods in clinical practice.
  • But so far, none of them can compete with the method of Dr. Claire Weekes. Now I have made some changes to her method and want to teach it to you.
  • You can practice it regularly as except for panic attacks. It is effective for almost most symptoms, including thinking symptoms.
  • Among what Dr. Claire Weekes said about facing it, accepting it, relaxing, and waiting.

In fact, the most important thing is to face it. Not to accept it directly by skipping “facing it”.


  • The so-called self-regulation or direct distraction is actually a false acceptance. Which has a comforting effect but not a therapeutic effect.
  • Of course, no matter how good the method is. You still need to practice with your usual symptoms.
  • Have you noticed that the more afraid you are, the more uncomfortable it will be? And vice verse.
  • It is terrifying, and it is a vicious cycle. So, why not sit down, find a comfortable position. Relax as much as you can, close your eyes.
  • And imagine that your eyelids are so heavy that you can’t open them no matter how hard you try. After you enter this state, carefully understand your symptoms.
  • Fully experience all your discomfort, use your mind to control it, and make your heart beat faster! your blood pressure slightly higher.
  • all your pain worse and your bad mood worse! You will find that you can’t make your condition worse as the power of adrenaline is limited.

And that is it at best. Once you do this, it shows that you are viewing it with interest. You show contempt and the symptoms will only gradually ease as you relax.

Panic attack (4)

  • The second type of panic attack may be more frightening than the first to some degree. As the first acts primarily on the body.
  • While the second acts on your “mind”. For patients who do not have such problems, please skip this chapter.
  • I feel that my mind has entered a black hole, which is out of my control. I am scared as it reminds me of “mental patients”.
  • Are they like this before they become “mental patients”? I am so scared and I can’t control my fear.
  • Some patients describe their own experiences like this. Other patients also say to me, “I feel like I am out of control, my thoughts are out of my control. And it seems like I am going crazy. My God, what should I do? I’m going crazy.”


  • Don’t get me wrong, folks. Although most patients like to talk about their symptoms endlessly when they chat. The “nagging” in the title does not refer to everyone. But refers to myself.
  • By reading the book from the very beginning till now. You may wonder why the author talks about these issues repeatedly. Couldn’t the author be simpler and clearer by just telling me the methods to recover?
  • I am really sorry, as there is no such “simple methods” in the world. If you want a complete recovery, please put up with my nagging for some more time.
  • In fact, the only purpose of my writing this book is to cure anxiety disorder completely. If you want to cure anxiety, you must repair the nerve.

If you want to repair the nerve, you must give it enough time and space to let it heal itself. If you want to meet this condition, you must overcome the fear itself.

Correct your misconceptions

  • If you want to overcome the fear itself, you must correct your misconceptions about anxiety disorder (such as the first reaction of palpitations is heart disease).
  • However, wrong perceptions are imprinted in our subconscious for decades. Through thousands of channels such as parents and elders, relatives and friends, classmates and colleagues, TV networks, etc.
  • How can it be easy to make a change? Therefore, I can only ramble and repeat my points to youover and over again.

Through “nagging”, I trying my best to imprint the correct understanding of anxiety disorder. In your subconscious and eliminate the wrong cognition.


  • I aspire to help everyone overcome the fear itself. So as to create conditions for the self-healing of the nerves, and finally achieve the purpose of healing.
  • You must know that many patients do not have the patience to finish the book. And some patients will only read part of the book by focusing on their own symptoms.
  • That is why I repeat at the end of each chapter: “As your understanding of the anxiety disorder gets deeper. You overcome the fear itself and your nerves repair. The symptoms will gradually ease and finally disappear.”
  • The reasons of my doing this are that I want everyone to see it, and also to impress you.

In fact, I have already deleted two-thirds of the book’s content. As I worry that some patients will not have the patience to finish it. If you can’t concentrate on it, then

Sense of hunger

  • “The sense of hunger is unbearable as soon as it is time to eat. When eating is delayed by other things, I will panic.”
  • “I feel so hungry, but in fact I have just eaten something. The sense of hunger is driving me crazy.”
  • This situation is ridiculous for normal people and it is also inconceivable for patients. With anxiety disorder who do not have similar symptoms.
  • Why not just eat something when you are hungry? Why not just bear with it for just the moment? This is what most people think.
  • But they have forgotten the particularity of autonomic disorders. Some patients have panic attacks which are caused by stomach symptoms.
  • Similar to “sense of hunger” and some experience “sense of hunger” when there are panic attacks. In fact, this is the same as when many patients have panic attacks or symptoms for the first time. They are driving, sleeping or in a square, etc.
  • The “horrible memory” makes it impossible for them to forget the fear of that moment. Which will come with driving, sleeping, being in a square, or feeling hungry.

In fact, this is also an anticipatory anxiety, as what everyone is afraid of is not the sense of hunger. But the fear that hunger will cause them to have symptoms.


  • Diarrhea symptoms, like stomach cramps, are the stress response of the intestines. When humans encounter negative emotions such as great fear and sadness.
  • It is also called irritable bowel syndrome, which is also known as intestinal dysfunction. It also belongs to the autonomic disorder (patients with simple irritable bowel syndrome are not considered here).
  • The purpose is also to discharge all things you eat, instead of vomiting, it is diarrhea.
  • Well, the answer is obvious, as autonomic disorder can be classified as one of the anxiety disorders. For patients with anxiety disorder.
  • Their disordered gastrointestinal nerves often mistakenly think that they need protection. So a stress response is ignited and diarrhea becomes normal again.
  • It is normal, isn’t it? Especially when you are nervous, angry, or afraid. This situation may become more obvious.
  • This does not mean that there is a major problem in your intestines. But it proves to you once again that this is just an “emotional illness”.
  • Otherwise, why is it easier to have diarrhea when you are nervous, excited, and fearful?

Remember, this may continue for a while until your nerve is completed repaired. All you have to do is actually allow it to exist, take it for granted, and wait patiently.


  • Regarding constipation, yes, we will talk about it. In addition to diarrhea. Constipation is also common in patients with anxiety disorder.
  • Patients often have difficulty in defecation or have decreased defecation. Most patients have either diarrhea or constipation and a small number of patients have both of them.
  • Symptoms switch from time to time. Patients often imagine such a normal problem as “intestinal obstruction” or other major diseases such as intestinal tumors.
  • Otherwise, why would you be constipated? Especially for patients who switch back and forth between constipation and diarrhea symptoms.
  • There is always a situation where they suddenly want to defecate but cannot make it, which is the so-called “tenesmus”.
  • In fact, this is not an incomprehensible situation. Normal people may be also like this when they experience emotional changes.
  • But their frequency may be lower and that of the patients with anxiety disorder is higher. Contrary to diarrhea (when sympathetic nerve excitation leads to fast gastrointestinal peristalsis).
  • Excitation of parasympathetic nerve or vagus nerve will lead to slow gastrointestinal peristalsis. Lack of motivation will naturally lead to constipation. So this is not a big problem.
  • It is just that the parasympathetic nerve is overly inhibiting the excitation of the sympathetic nerve.
  • Please remember, it has already displayed its greatest power to make you constipated. It can neither block your digestion and absorption, nor cause serious organic problems.

It can only lead to gastrointestinal dysfunction, which is nothing to worry about. So please accept it, treat it as a part of your body and allow it to exist for a while. It is a bit annoying, but that’s all.

Frequent and urgent urination (1)

  • Frequent and urgent urination really makes many patients distressed. It will not only make you overwhelmed. But also make you hypochondriacal, wondering if there is a problem with the urethra, the bladder, or even the kidneys.

At this time, you can’t help but “Googling” your symptoms again. Then the symptoms will range from nephritis, which is in mild, to uremia and tumors, which are severe.


  • First of all, frequent and urgent urination caused by anxiety disorder is very common. For some people, the symptom will last for a few days, and for others, it may last for several months.
  • The reason is actually very simple. From a neurological point of view, the function of urination is controlled by the sympathetic nerve.
  • Generally, when enough urine accumulates in the bladder, it will form pressure on the bladder nerve.
  • The pressure excitation is transmitted through nerve endings. To the sympathetic nerve that controls urination, causing sympathetic nerve excitation.
  • Which triggers the urge to urinate. It then promotes the contraction of the urinary bladder muscle to complete urination.
  • Patients with anxiety disorder have frequent sympathetic activation, which can cause many symptoms. As the sympathetic nerve that controls urination is frequently excited. It is normal for frequent and urgent urination.
  • It is not a big deal and it’s just a bit “annoying”. Frequent and urgent urination caused by autonomic disorder won’t do you any harm and it is just a neural response.
  • Your nerves are currently “broken”, so they respond incorrectly from time to time, is there a problem? All you have to do is understand it and allow it to exist.
  • Conversely, it is harmful to have fear, worry, and entanglement just because you don’t understand it.

With the reduction of your fear, the excitation of the sympathetic nerve will no longer be frequent. And it will gradually ease until finally disappears.
