Panic attacks

Story Time. In 2016, 6 months later my “fake alert”, in july, I had the first Panic Attack of my life. I was terrified, thought gonna die or loose my sanity. I was at work, and suddenly it happened. My mind lost control on my body. Or today, I would say that my body took control on my mind, in order to communicate. At that season, I was angry, frustrated and stressed out, perhaps depressed, apathic, and I couldn’ t relate to my inner wisdom. There wasn’t any. My soul launched me an alert to say “hello, nobody’s home?”. One way to … Continue reading Panic attacks

My first attempts to find penpals, except for subscribing to “International Pen Friends”(thank you my last representative from Sidney, AU), were not lucky.
