Day Ten - Interesting Interview

After seeing David Barlow on This Emotional Life, I googled some of his articles and found this interview. It's really interesting -- for example, did you know that 10% of the population has non-clinical panic? These are people who experience the same physiological symptoms of a panic attack, but don't label it as such. An aspect that makes panic disorder a disorder is fearing more attacks and avoiding situations where panic may present. People with non-clinical panic might have the symptoms and chock up the feelings to a stressful day or something they ate. I find this fascinating! He also speaks to why some people develop an anxiety disorder and others don't, even with a biological predisposition. Read it if you get the chance and tell me what you think!
