Anxiety Attacks

When people think about anxiety attacks, most people associate them with hyperventilating and rocking back and forth. But anxiety attacks can take many different forms, such as:

  • Unpredictable bouts of rage or irritability
  • Nit-pickiness (obsessive behavior, which may be part of OCD), and even a 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 “zoned out”

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