For her, her triggers were completely random too, and I always feared it would happen while she was driving or in a dangerous situation. I never understood it or thought it was a 'big deal' until I met her...but it's scary to see someone just sitting there shivering and completely 'closed out' to the rest of the world, even loved ones.
I honestly don't think he'll pan out in the nba due to this reason, probably the worst line of business to be in with his type of condition. Probably not gonna get any better either, as he has access to all the best psychiatrists/doctors in the world and it doesn't look like it's helping.
Yes...panic attacks are the absolute worst feeling in the world. They key is to convince yourself it is not that bad when you feel the symptoms coming on.
