Anxiety – part 2

Anxiety – part 2


Anxiety attacks are not always hyperventilating and rocking back and forth.  Anxiety attacks can take different forms, such as:

Unpredictable bouts of rage or irritability.  Nit picking – obsessive behavior, which may be a part of OCD – and even hypersensitivity to disarray, chaos, or any sort of change.  Fast-talking, stuttering, stumbling over words.  Not talking at all.  Sitting rigid, staring into space, almost seeming to “zone-out”.

Understanding the way our or other’s anxiety works can help to decrease the stigma and help calm a person faster and get them out of that state.  These are just a few, but it gives an idea of the range in which attacks can come.
