    Panic 101

    When Matt Gutman was just 12 years old, his father – then 42 – died suddenly in a plane crash. This early trauma had a profound impact on Matt, and spurred him on to a career in journalism.

    As a journalist, Matt had a reputation for being fearless. Some friends even speculated his risk-taking bordered on a flirtation with an early exit, mirroring his father’s death. Matt reported from some of the world’s most dangerous conflict zones: Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza. But while he seemed cool under pressure, in private, he was battling debilitating panic attacks.

    In December 2019, he had his own forty-second birthday and began to grapple with the strange reality of outliving his dad. Weeks later, from another crash site, Matt suffered a panic attack, which caused him to misreport the details of the tragic accident that killed basketball player Kobe Bryant and eight others – including Bryant’s daughter, Gianna. 

    In the wake of this error, Matt was suspended. With time on his hands, he decided he needed to get to grips with the panic disorder that had, for so long, limited his life. He began with trying to understand the basics. Here’s what he found. 

    According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), a panic attack involves an abrupt and intense surge of fear that reaches its peak within minutes. While fear helps us react to immediate threats, anxiety involves perceived future dangers and often triggers panic attacks. About 5 percent of Americans experience panic disorder, defined as repeated unexpected panic episodes and chronic anxiety about having attacks. As for Americans who’ve reported suffering at least one attack, the numbers are less clear – but estimates go all the way up to 85 million people. 

    So, what exactly happens during a panic attack? The amygdala, an almond-shaped structure in the brain, acts as an innate danger detector. It senses threats before the thinking frontal cortex has time to react rationally. In panic, the amygdala hijacks the brain's emotional system. It triggers the hypothalamus to activate the body's fight, flight, or freeze response by flooding it with adrenaline and stress hormones. This acute stress reaction primes the body to respond to perceived danger. 

    Physical panic symptoms match those needed for fleeing, battling, or freezing in the face of real bodily threats. But in a panic attack, the amygdala misfires in response to everyday stresses or anxieties – unnecessarily putting the emergency system on high alert. Panic attacks fool sufferers into thinking they are dying since the physical sensations simulate mortal peril. This is why attacks feel so viscerally real despite no actual mortal threat.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
