This is a zero picture post, but I promise, it's worth the read if you are a parent or are thinking of becoming a parent. No one trains us for this. There is no manual, no adequate prepping course. There are only the strange and unbelievable battle stories of other parents. Even then, every day brings new and exciting adventures to face. Face them well, fellow big people. Our little people need us.
I don't care if you call them panic attacks, anxiety episodes, or just crippling heart claws from hell...unexplained moments of intense emotional confusion and physical manifestation can be paralyzing. Terrifying. And different every time.
