So for this presentation on how I became a writer I have photographed my journal where I literally wrote myself out of panic attacks. This is how my writing started. You can see how I felt an attack coming up, wrote in English that I will start writing it, and then switched my hand to the left one (my therapist told me it lets me access the subconscious) and started writing in Russian, and you can even see how my writing deteriorates as I go through it, and how I come out the other end. I decide to battle it.
Now that I look back at it, I recoil in horror. This is scary stuff. I don't know if I could go through this again.
