A while back, I started dating this girl, though to no surprise we lasted about 3 months. Typical stuff right? Not quite, when the summer ended and school rolled around, seeing her gave me a terrible panic attack. I collapsed in the stairwell, hyperventilating, unable to speak or move. This was the start of something terrible, something I’m still yet to fully recover from. I tried many things to fix it, therapy, medicine, I would avoid her at any and all cost, doing everything in my power to stay away from her. I tried even talking out my emotions with my ex to see if it would fix anything. Unfortunately it wouldn’t be that simple. Classes don’t stop for those who can’t learn. The months ensuing were not easy by any means. I was put on a few different medicines, having panic attacks almost every day, and coming home exhausted beyond measure. Times were tough, by all means. Eventually though, something clicked, and my fear dissipated. Through certain means, after months of fear of seeing her, bumping into her in the hallway and almost passing out, collapsing from newfound anxieties. It’s not entirely gone, but things are better. I’m in a healthy relationship now, and things look better. My phobia of her is much less frequent now.
