"This Is Us" also paid attention to details in a way that other shows highlighting anxiety attacks have not.
For instance, Randall's shaking hands, uncontrollable sweating, and blurred visions are common symptoms of panic attacks.
"The blurring of his vision gave the feeling of detachment or unreality," Murrough told Health. "De-personalization or feeling disconnected from your body is another common symptom of a panic attack."
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the US, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. About 40 million Americans have an anxiety disorder.
Seeing that experience on primetime television can help ease the stigma and shame that often accompanies mental illness. For that reason, "This Is Us" just topped itself — again.
