They say you can never forget your first kiss…
You can never forget your first Panic Attack either…
This is true for me.
I was 21 yrs old and it was a stinker of a very hot summer day. My mum made chicken soup for lunch. I remember feeling all of a sudden, out of the blue, a sense of feeling hot, constricted, anxious and scared. I stormed out of my chair and told my mum I wasn’t feeling well and ran into the lounge room. I remember my mum being worried . I lay on the couch all confused and scared at what was happening to me.
My head was heavy, my heart racing, sweating, couldn’t breathe properly. I wanted to just run away. I didn’t though.
I just lay there on the couch slowly feeling the feeling of ease come over me. I got up and went back to the table. I cant remember if i finished my lunch.
Until next time
