Start > Resource centre > Articles > Stress in everyday life: Panic Attacks Part 1

Everyone is affected by stress in a variety of ways. Among the more difficult forms of stress are panic attacks.

Certain people are predisposed to having panic attacks. This explains why some people are affected and others are not. It also underlines the difficulty some people have in understanding those who suffer from panic attacks.

If you have never experienced one, how can you understand what it feels like to suffer one?

Stress in the workplace can bring on, or aggravate, a panic attack disorder. Even if the stressor is outside the workplace, an employee can still be affected at work because they are always anxious that an attack may happen. A panic attack sufferer will usually experience an attack during a stress situation. They may feel fear and desperately need to avoid a situation.

A classic example would be someone who has a fear of flying. They feel the fear, they want to get out of the situation because they see it as threatening to them. Their fears and thoughts take over any rational thinking.
