It is totally normal for a healthy mind to attempt to predict the future in order to keep you and your loved ones safe. We typically draw from past experiences with the learnings we gave these experience, to risk assess the future.
However, what if your mind is viewing the future through a lens of trauma or negative learnings? What if your emotions are triggered by trauma? And this can include the trauma of a past panic attack with accompanying fear of having another.
When to get Professional help?
1. When it prevents you living with freedom to be yourself, doing normal things that others do, feeling comfortable, at ease, joyful and safe.
2. When you routinely limit and shrink your freedom to travel, to explore your potential, and achieve your health goals.
3. When you only feel fully safe at home.
4. When you struggle to completely relax.
5. When anxiety or panic feelings and mental noise disrupt your sleep.

Anxiety sufferers have vivid imaginations of worst case scenarios. Feeling a dread that can twist your stomach into knots days before. Other common signs and symptoms include:
Feeling restless, wound-up, or on-edge.

Having difficulty concentrating; mind going blank.
Restricted and shallow breathing.
