  1. That was nothin. I even didnt notice it was a panic attack. Its normal sometimes our minds are like in the clouds or somewhere. I have seen worst panic attacks than this one.

  2. I appreciate the candor of him sharing this and helping us all see how human we really are. Thanks for being vulnerable.

  3. Fake. I suffer these daily/weekly and you can't control anything. You're making $$$$$$$. and this is just for attention. ASSHOLE>

  4. By calling THAT embarassing , makes millions of other panic attack patients feel worse about themselves… THAT wasn't even close to noticeable…yes it may be horrible inside his head but you see what I am saying…

  5. The scariest thing about panic attacks is that they can happen whenever. Sometimes they can happen after something traumatic but yet you can be perfectly healthy for a majority of your life when all the sudden you start to have one 😔

  6. The first time I ever had a panic attack I thought I was having a stroke or a heart attack. It is a horrible feeling. Stay strong everyone

  7. apparently you can control panic attacks according to family haha they dont even get it or at least get that you dont get it…. sometimes you just cant control yourself or thoughts or what you eventually blurt out

  8. These Cliff Hangers piss me off!!!!…what was his Scientifically Proven New therapy?

    I'm guessing?… MEDITATION???

    What do y'all think?

  9. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Panic attacks are very common and many people suffer from them. They can make us feel very bad as if we are about to die.

  10. If anyone is gonna have a panic it would be someone who's always under a microscope and in the cameras eye. This is not surprising at all

  11. Well done mate. I've experienced something similar at work. After months of prolonged stress I remember sitting at my desk and feeling like I was going to die. I got up, walked out and said I won't be back for atleast a few days. It frightening and when you're driven it can feel humiliating but it's the body's way of protecting you from t t e danger your in.
