Anxiety at the Grocery Store

It’s been a while since I’ve been this close to a panic attack in public. Sunday, sometime in the middle of the day, I needed to go to the store to pick up some things for the house. Typically, if my boyfriend is awake before one of his work nights, we’ll go shopping together, but…
