Panic attack

The first time I experienced an overt panic attack was the day in mid-2004 when Kim and I agreed to be friends.

I don't remember the exact date, but somewhere here I still have the house-doctor's bill.

It's funny that in English we call it a panic "attack." That seems a dramatic way of thinking that gives power to experience. But panic attack is not exclusive to English-speaking peoples.

Panic attack is fairly normal across cultures -- it is human. caveat, maybe western cultures. cut out words across cultures It's not normal in the sense that having a cup of tea is normal. But it happens.
