Tracey, I can truly relate to this story and your pain. I understand why you sprinted through writing it, and I expect it was difficult to hit that publish button. But as a reader I wish you had expanded a bit more on your feelings, such as why you think you reacted the way you did. Maybe some more background on what the source of your anxiety is? If you know, that is. If you’ve written about this elsewhere, I’d have liked a link to those stories. Best wishes from a fellow sufferer.
