Realizing I had anxiety attacks not a personality flaw at 40 - Rambling Rach
I just recently learned, at age 40, I've been having anxiety attacks since I was a little girl. I've always known when my daughter was having one right away. I quickly learned to recognize the overwhelming (and sometimes irrational) fear, the strong desire to get away, the crying, sweating, shaking and shortness of breath. Yet it never occurred to me that I experienced something similar.
