Anxiety Attacks

“I don’t know, Doctor, it’s just that there’s so many expectations. There’s so much pressure on me to never fail.” 

“Mm. So your anxiety attacks happen when you think of the expectations people put on you?”

“I think that’s it. Yeah.”

The doctor retrieves the patient’s mom and shares her daughter’s insight.

“Expectations? Anxiety attacks? I can tell you why she’s having anxiety attacks. Last week she stole my car to drive her brother to a party in Tacoma!”

Scandalized, the doctor stares at the patient. She won’t meet his eyes.

“Well?”

Nothing.

“It’s important to be—honest. In life.”
