Why do we suffer from Panick and Anxiety attacks?

it seems our body puts out a chemical that starts it, and from there we get worse because we get scared, our minds are so powerful they take over if we let them, strange i know but we are doing it ourself and its hard to get it under control if we let it go to far.

It's a flight or fight response to a perceived threat. Panic attacks are your mind and bodies way of trying to run from something. Of course when your mind attempts to run, it has nowhere to go but in circles, after all, it's your mind and it can't possibly leave. That's why acceptance is often taught as a method of behavioral therapy to treat anxiety. The more you try to fight the anxiety and control it, the stronger it gets.
