Panic Disorder in A Different Culture


Panic disorder is a mental health condition which can make it very difficult to cope with everyday situations. Work, school and personal relationships can all be affected by the presence of panic disorder.

What exactly defines panic disorder? Essentially, someone will be diagnosed with it if he or she is afflicted with panic attacks, usually at unexpected times.

A panic attack is characterized by a variety of unpleasant physical symptoms. Some of the symptoms by which you can identify a panic attack are a rapid heartbeat, shaking or trembling, and perspiration. There is also typically a feeling of separation from your body or “unreality.” A person having his or her first panic attack usually mistakes the panic attack for a heart attack.

Of course, experiencing such symptoms can be frightening and disruptive to your life. This is why it is important to seek professional counsel for dealing with panic disorder.

An article from Uganda describes the experiences of a young professional woman who has panic attacks. Surprisingly, panic disorder is viewed very similarly in Uganda as it is in America. There are some helpful tips and information available in the article that can be used by anyone who suffers from panic disorder.

That is interesting. I remember reading years ago that people in India are more likely to attribute faults to themselves rather than to strangers, like if they are cut off in traffic. In the US, we are the opposite. So I often wonder how other cultures differ in how they handle various emotions.

I hadn’t heard that about India, very interesting!

Thank you for sharing this and to josjane1406, as well. People tend to view panic disorder as rather uniquely an American phenomenon and that always seemed unlikely to me.

Right, it’s most certainly a global issue!

When people imagine self build homes they frequently envision the
grand designs they have seen constructed on recent television programmes.

Engineers and Land Surveyors was placed in 1935 to protect
the public by aiding “to safeguard daily life, well-being, and property, also to advertise the public welfare by furnishing for the licensing and unsafe effects of people within the practices of engineering and land surveying. They are predicting this as a result of political upheaval which has occurred in the last two months.
