Maybe it's a combination and each layer adds more stress and more panic to your experience.
It can be frustrating to feel so out of control, so swept about by your experience.
It can also be empowering to tend to your system in these moments. You get to be the one to guide yourself back to a place of regulation. With practice, you get to re-train your brain and teach it that it no longer needs to sound the alarm bells.
