When we become stressed or fearful, we are often at the mercy of the cocktail of hormones and chemicals that pump through our bodies. It’s quite common that this flush of hormones will lead to panic. This unrestrained fear is a common response to crisis, and it can manifest itself in many ways. If you panic, you may run around frantically. Or you may be frozen in fear and be unable to move. You may even become overwhelmed by emotion, screaming, crying or lashing out. Any of these responses could get you injured, and then you’ll have a whole new set of problems.
