Your First Out of the Blue Panic Attack
“It was a Monday morning and everything was just fine. I was listening to a song on the radio as I was driving to work, when all of sudden out of nowhere, my heart began to thump wildly, my head felt woozy and a burning sensation flashed through my body. I thought this is the end. I pictured myself fainting at the wheel and never seeing my children grow up. I was so convinced I was about to die, I drove to the nearest Emergency Room.
Three hours later, after a thorough medical work-up, I was told nothing is wrong. It was just stress.
But, no one told me WHY I was feeling so awful with dizzy spells and heat waves. Now I began to think “Maybe the Doctor at the ER missed something serious and I have an undetected serious illness.”
Here is the Choice Point:
…make the false link…catch a case of Doctor Doubt
and continue to seek medical explanations for panic attack symptoms..brain tumor, heart disease, stroke…Worry about your health and fuel the symptoms of panic with adrenaline driven by health worry.
Or Discover The Missing Link and Prevent the Progression of Panic Disorder.

Sometimes, it is not easy to uncover the Missing Link and you must overcome the barriers to self-discovery through the
Eight Step Method of Discovery.
The Eight Step Discovery Process Begins With Thought Catching.
How could listening to music on the radio trigger a panic attack??? Music is NOT a trigger for a panic attack.

What associations to the song raced through your mind.” The answer to these questions will lead you to the discovery of your missing link-the goldmine for panic prevention. Don’t be surprised or discouraged if the answer does not immediately come to your mind. You may have to follow the Eight Step Method to overcome barriers to self discovery of your missing link.
