Do you have a friend or family member who suffers from irrational anxiety, debilitating panic attacks or deep depressive moods?
Has your normally upbeat friend, son or daughter become a victim to moodiness and overwhelming sadness – black moods which can hit without warning and which don’t seem to have a rational explanation?
It’s really frustrating to stand and watch a loved one, who was once so grounded and rational, undergo a complete personality change to become sad, introverted, moody or downright terrified of getting up in the morning.
No amount of persuasion or reassurance seems to have any effect, and doctors and counselors have no answer to reversing the condition.
As a society, we have come to use the word ‘depression’, and apply it to when we have a temporary setback or are just feeling sad – usually for a justifiable reason, such as missing a loved one who’s away on business, miserable weather on a holiday weekend etc. These feelings can be reversed by simple therapies like phoning a friend, going to the gym, watching a fun movie. But what happens when the mood can’t be lifted and clinical depression takes hold – and begins to define the life of the sufferer?
What can you do when you see someone spiral into depression, experience panic attacks and gnawing anxiety about trivial matters, become reclusive and even undergo personality change?
For those of us observing these changes, we feel helpless and put our faith in the medical services to offer a solution. But what practical therapies are actually available for anxiety and panic?
Standard Medical Advice- What is on offer?
Currently, the health services can offer counseling for anxiety – but irrational panic comes from the subconscious mind and doesn’t understand words, despite the conscious mind being aware of their logical reasoning.
Failing the attempt to reason with the sufferer, the second approach is to prescribe calming drugs, to alter the state of the brain. If the fault has arisen in the subconscious mind, the obvious result of introducing chemicals to the brain is simply to make matters worse. In fact, anyone who has gone through this experience will tell you that, although they felt temporary relief on the prescription drugs, the long-term effect was to worsen the symptoms of anxiety and neither counseling nor medication offered a satisfactory answer to how to deal with panic attacks.
A Real and Practical Solution
Although we may try to SAY something helpful, we have learned to appreciate that words are fairly useless under the circumstances.
When someone is under attack from anxiety symptoms, we feel powerless to DO anything.
We can’t stand by helplessly – we feel instinctively that we need to take action.
That is exactly why Anna Gibson Steel’s 60 Second Panic Solution is so powerful. It is a short, easy to master, one minute technique which can be implemented anywhere to bring instant relief and finally gives us an answer to the question of how to deal with panic attacks.
I strongly recommend anyone to acquire this technique – whether you need it for yourself or for a family member now- or to be prepared for it happening to you or anyone you know in future.
