About this photo: “Get me out of here, now!
I can’t stand going to the grocery store.
I take a list.  I get in. I walk as fast as I can. I get what I need and get out as fast as I possibly can.
But the people, the lights, the movement, the noise, it all closes in on me and a panic attack never fails to hit.

Just get me out…let me breathe—please.

I leave the store—normal breathing restored.
