My first contact with a mental health worker was in 2021. In that period the first panic attacks began and I had absolutely no idea how to deal with them. That’s why I decided to turn to a psychologist. It wasn’t easy at first, opening up so much to someone you don’t know and talking about your problems is not for everyone. But all this effort has been useful in the end. I can say now that I can recognize and deal with a panic attack.
