A runner—who ran at the colligate level—and creative who struggles with night terrors and panic attacks.
The first story in the panic attacks series comes from my friend Kami. She experienced her first one in 2004. She thought she was having a heart attack and when it was over she didn’t tell a soul.
Later, when she off-handedly mentioned it to her doctor, he was awkward about it. Read about her experience with panic attacks and how she’s managed them.
Because of the obviously lack of stories out there about runners and panic attacks I wanted to start a series on the topic. I hope to create a place for people to share their story and read about how others experience and manage their own panic attacks.
