Panic Attack or Anxiety PTSD: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
Panic attacks are as unforeseen and overwhelming as a tsunami and as detrimental for one’s health as periods of absolute drought in a desert. The heart races like a steam engine trying to outrun the inevitable roller of emotional despair and incapacity in the face of the unexplainable terror. Panic attacks, most of the time abrupt and intense by nature, may be associated with numerous symptoms including shortness of breath, hyperventilation, excessive sweating, sensations of choking, and extreme heart palpitations. Although frequently these episodes occur without an obvious reason, psychologists claim that the origin of panic attacks lies within a rudimentary fight-or-flight bodily response to danger.
During a panic attack, a large amount of adrenaline is generally released into the bloodstream. Panic attacks can flag an anxiety disorder, panic disorder or other mental condition, but they can also appear on their own. The average duration of a panic attack, according to the American Psychological Association, is about 10 minutes. A lot of people who have experienced a panic attack describe it as the worst, most terrifying feeling of their lives, as if they were losing their mind or choking to death.
Stress can be described as inability of the organism to respond to any given situation adequately and retain homeostasis – in other words equilibrium or balance – of the system. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) defines an acute and prolonged emotional response to a severe psychological trauma. Any significant traumatic event can trigger PTSD: death of a loved one, physical threat, serious injury, psychological shock, etc. It is important, however, to distinguish PTSD from traumatic stress. These conditions are somewhat common in underlying reasons but differ in intensity and duration. Hysteria was once related to "traumatic reminiscences" also. At the beginning of the 20th century Sigmund Freud's student - patient, Abram Kardiner, came to see that traumatic neurosis at war could destroy the adaptive capacity of an individual. Thus, he was the first to introduce the symptoms of a post-traumatic stress disorder into the scientific community.
The best compliment to an artist contemplating on such an elusive topic as panic attacks is to hear “I know the feeling” feedback from viewers. It means that the snapshot of an idea has been successful. There’s nothing personal in this image as I was merely trying to reflect someone else’s emotional state.

I am writing because I will be giving a Tedx talk on fears of technology for my university (Stetson University) in a few weeks. One of my slides mentions fears about locomotives back when they were being introduced in the mid 19th century.

A collection of panic attack medicine and treatments are developed and marketed around the world. However, it is always up to the consumers’ sensitive eye whether to avail of such scientifically-tested medical breakthroughs or use any such claimed-to-be

I am making a website for my psychologist centre. I would like to put this work on our website, together with the information about anxiety and panic disorder. It really explaines what happens to someone who has a panic attack or who experiences anxiety.
