Panic Attacks in Supermarkets

Panic attacks in supermarkets are very common, especially in today’s society of stress and anxiety.   It is not important to ascertain what has caused the original panic attack.  What is important is our reaction to it.
Some people will just shrug it off and it will never reoccur.   Others will, unfortunately, when they re-enter the supermarket on another day, say to themselves “I had a panic attack last time I was here.  I wonder if it will happen again?”   When this happens, there is a strong chance that the attack will reoccur.   If this is repeated, then panic attacks in supermarkets become a learned fear and the result may be an avoidance of the area.
It is important to understand that supermarkets can’t cause panic attacks; what has happened is that you have created a connection between the attack and the supermarket.   If you suffer from this or any other type of panic attack, click here.

    Some years ago I suffered with depression and anxiety badly. I went to see a psychologist who gave me anti-depressants to help the problem. I told him that I used to get panic attacks when I went into supermarkets. My breathing became bad and I got palpitations and I felt sick and dizzy. He advised me to stop going in the local supermarket as if I gave into my anxieties my brain would tell me everytime I went in the same situation would happen. He said try to visit the supermarket a few times a week. Even if just to walk around and not buy anything. Stay a short while and the next time you visit stay a little longer. I tried this technique as mush as possible and glad to say it worked although it took awhile to completely eradicate the problem.
