The meeting was just about over when I mentioned my recent panic attack. The therapist was taken aback and asked why I waited until the last minute to report such a serious issue. The conversation was riveting and it was easy for me forget the night that I didn’t sleep and played over in my mind each detail as if it were yesterday. In fact, I didn’t really want to talk about it as I feared more nightmares and reliving that long forgotten incident that happened over 30 years ago. So why did I open my big mouth? To be reassured that it was normal and there was a way to cope with it if it happened again. I left with the details I needed, satisfied.
