Ah, so easy to say – so difficult to do.

Yesterday I had a paroxysm of anxiety – may be not a classical panic attack, but I felt gut-punched, my heart raced, my thoughts were in over-drive and I certainly didn’t know where my towel was. I know what set it off, it shouldn’t have; expected, but then again unexpected. The worse part is how totally drained I was afterwards, even thought the acute episode was just minutes possible seconds, its residual effect persisted; fatigue, reoccuring thoughts, hyper vigilance, dysphoria.
As a means of control, I started doing some research, wait for it, on the internet. This one item really caught my eye:
Wikipedia Panic attack
Lack of assertiveness — A growing body of evidence supports the idea that those that suffer from panic attacks engage in a passive style of communication or interactions with others. This communication style, while polite and respectful, is also characteristically un-assertive. This un-assertive way of communicating seems to contribute to panic attacks while being frequently present in those that are afflicted with panic attacks
And that is all I have to say about that for now.
