Panic Day is an American holiday dedicated to panic. This negative emotional state can come on suddenly. A person subjected to a panic attack loses the ability to think clearly and make informed decisions. It’s a sense of fear that’s multiplied. It is celebrated annually on March 9.
The history of Panic Day is not known. It probably could have been invented by psychologists or a person who was subject to panic. The main goal of the holiday is to raise public awareness of panic and to find effective ways to combat it.
Panic often occurs in overly stressful situations. For example, a person gets in an accident and cannot get out of the car because of serious damage to the body, the door does not open or the person remains trapped between the seats. Panic can also be caused by completely harmless situations. For example, if a person has a weak nervous system and increased anxiety, a session on the “roller coaster” and a visit to the “Room of Fear” can lead to a panic attack.
Panic attack is heralded by an accelerated heart rate and increasing anxiety. In the midst of panic, a person’s ability to think straight shuts down. She is blocked by an animal fear that comes in waves. The person has difficulty speaking and performing even the simplest actions. Panic attacks can go away on their own, but there are special medications that allow you to stop the attack.
- Panic attacks can be a disease and can occur periodically as a result of certain triggers. You need to see a psychiatrist to solve the problem.
- Ignoring panic attacks leads to an increase in their duration and severity. If the problem is not solved, then the nervous system can be seriously affected.
