Dr. Kissen was recently featured in an article on NextAvenue about suffering from panic attacks:
“A panic attack is a misfire of the ‘fight or flight’ signal a person experiences when there is a real danger. Although they are not in real danger, the sensation of fear revs them up and it can feel like they are dying, out of control or going crazy.”
In addition, Dr. Kissen explains how it is normal to feel anxiety and the panic induced from it:
“It’s counterproductive to belittle your pain or feel you ‘should be okay.’ We have all experienced losses and changes this past year-and-a-half due to the pandemic. Just because you didn’t suffer as much as someone else does not mean you aren’t going through a tough time.”
