hello there mom, I just had a panic attack in a department store and my sister was basically insulting me the entire time. Now I have to sit through a 10 hour car ride back home with my dad who causes me so much anxiety and my sister that would die if she ever said something comforting. Send help.
Oh darling, I am so sorry – please know that you are not alone! I, too, have had department store panic attacks, as I’m sure have many of us on here. I’m so sorry that your family isn’t giving you the support that you deserve. You deserve to be held (if you like touch) and soothed and praised because you are so brave for having gotten through that awful experience. I know the car ride isn’t going to be easy, but you are strong and you are perfect, and I believe in you so strongly, my darling. I am so proud of you for being who you are, honey. You are not alone and you are so, so, so loved, sweetheart ♡♡♡♡♡
