  1. A panic attack is a sudden overwhelming feeling of fear that
    strikes without warning. You always live in that fear that you will get the panic
    attack. You don’t have to understand why, you just need to understand that it is a very frightening experience for them and rational thinking will be difficult if not impossible. How can I offer myself this wonderful anxiety attack remedy and really pull it off.
