We all have fears. There are many things in life of which to be fearful. Crime, natural disasters, disease, death; all of these things cause fear in life. However, there are many things that are not entirely rational to fear, but cause anxiety nonetheless. For those that experience panic attacks, anything can cause fear to strike. Did I check the door? Is the oven turned off? Are my hands clean? Do I have my keys? For those with panic attacks, anything can trigger an episode.
