I clearly remember the first panic attack I had. It was around 1989. I was traveling – my first work related travel – new city, new surroundings and a hotel room all by myself. Suddenly, on the first night there, I began to feel a heaviness in my chest, a great sense of fear and a feeling that I was chocking. It felt as if someone was sitting on my chest and chocking the life out of me. I thought I was having a heart attack. I remember praying – not knowing what to do. The feeling passed. But to this day I vividly recall every sensation. Later, at various points of time when I was stressed or overwhelmed, I have had similar panic attacks. Thankfully, I don’t have them any more.
