My First Panic Attack

Somehow I just can't let that first panic attack go. I am still very afraid it will happen again.
It was such a long time ago.  If it happened again  I certainly would cope much better than the first time.   That really traumitized me and I just can"t forget it.
Also I think it was the cause of my breaking down 7 years later.

hello gooch, i understand hiding the panic attacks, I hid them too. I didn\'t know how anyone could help me. The only thing that helped me was antidepressants, valium and sympathy.

i remember my first one too. i was in college, about to take a test, and went blank. i had just lost my parents and was going thru a divorce. it was hard. and i get scared about others coming on, too. (((((hugs)))))
