Hi! Since a lot of my posts are about mental health issues, I thought I’d post this video that Kevin put up where he has an actual panic attack on video. Be warned, because it might disturb you. It is sad to watch him go through this. Kevin has two channels on YouTube, CapnOAwesome and KevinGetsHealthy. The CapnOAwesome channel is mainly his atheist channel and his KevinGetsHealthy channel is mainly about his panic attacks. Kevin is a college student and he works and is otherwise an apparently together person, but his panic attacks severely interfere with his life when he has them. After you see this video you will understand why. He says they just happen for no reason and that is part of the problem, because he never knows when they will show up. He has even said that he has wrecked a car because he had one of these attacks while driving! Watching Kevin’s videos helped me to realize that the anxiety I experience does happen within discreet periods for the most part, but my anxiety is NOTHING like Kevin’s. Hopefully this video will be helpful for you in understanding your own or another person’s anxiety and/or panic attacks. The treatments for anxiety and panic attacks range from anti-anxiety medications to behavior modification techniques to using tranquilizers or anti-depressants. It really depends on the individual and what her/his treatment providers think is best.
