Question: What causes psychological shock in humans and how is it preventable? Not electrical shock, but the kind of shock that often kills animals attacked by other animals. Can this kill you as easily as it can kill animals? Can simple anxiety cause it because that's scary. How can I prevent this ever happening to me? Thanks.

Answer: The only way to prevent it would be to be able to predict the future. If you are exposed to something more horrible than you mind is willing to accept it goes into this state of shock. I think that it can certainly kill people, and I have seen people turn into something of another reality from it. You have to wonder if they want to be here, and deal with an ongoing hurricane of emotions. Life for these people; no matter the length, is much to long.
