What is stress?

Stress is the “wear and tear” our bodies experience as we adjust to our continually changing environment. In fact it has physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative feelings.

Therefore, as a positive influence, stress can help prompt us into action. Therefore it can result in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective.

However, as a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression. These in turn can lead to health problems.  Common effects include headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

What else causes stress and anxiety?

With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. In so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it. In other words, anxiety can be the result of trying unsuccessfully to adjust.

Positive stress adds anticipation and excitement to life, and we all thrive under a certain amount of stress. Deadlines, competitions, confrontations, and even our frustrations and sorrows add depth and enrichment to our lives. We cannot avoid stressful situations in our lives but we can teach you how to manage it in a positive way.

Panic Attacks

We all feel anxious from time to time and this is perfectly normal. But when a panic attack strikes, it feels anything but normal.

For instance, a panic attack can happen completely ‘out of the blue’, and often occur for little or no apparent reason. The onset of a panic attack is usually very sudden, and is basically an exaggeration of the body’s normal response to fear. The chemical adrenaline is normally produced when we need to do something such as run from danger or stand and fight. However, it is overproduced during a panic attack. The result is a multitude of unpleasant sensations.

The symptoms of a panic attack will vary from person to person, but can include any of the following:

  • Shaking
  • Difficulty in breathing, or shortness of breath
  • Abnormally rapid heartbeat
  • Excessive sweating
  • Chest tightness
  • Chest pain
  • Abnormal sensations of the skin
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Tension and apprehension
  • The feeling that ‘something terrible’ is going to happen.
  • A specific fear of death or illness

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSDor Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of a life-threatening event. For example, a serious accident, military combat, or being in a war zone.  PTSD can also be caused by being affected by earthquakes or other natural disasters or terrorist incidents.  Similarly, it can also affect those people who have trauma through physical or sexual assault in adult or childhood.  In particular it is seen in health professionals who experience trauma in their daily work.

People who have faced a traumatic experience may simply feel emotionally numb to begin with.  Sometimes, feelings of distress may not emerge straight away. But it is possible that emotional and physical reactions may develop and changes in behaviour occur.
