I had a small panic attack at my work yesterday.
I was expecting something mildly unpleasant to happen, but I didn't know when.
When it happened, I wasn't ready.
I suddenly couldn't catch my breath and started to shiver.
I tried to run away from nothing, in a small space, with nowhere to run at all.
I don't really remember.
I blurted out something like "I can't" and started to cry.
Afterwards I felt embarrassed and disappointed in myself.
I have friends in my team who are empathetic, kind, patient and understanding.
But it is still a very awkward thing to have happen.
I was also very uncomfortably sweaty for the rest of the day.
