It starts with a small heart attack. Anticipation of something involving public speaking, forgetting something important too late, things like this start it. Sometimes nothing at all is going wrong and I just cry. We'll go with your basic, "I forgot we had a test today and I spent all last night on the internet."
Then my mind goes blank.
Then my brain and I disagree.
And then I realize that my brain won't listen to me.
Then there's almost tears and I can't talk. This is my biggest issue. The anxiety located in my throat says that the only sound I'm going to make is gasping/crying.
Then I'm usually tired. So I take a nap.
Then I went to college where no one knew this happened a lot in elementary to high school!
And now I'm a zen machine.
