"It’s such a sensitive topic, and it’s a part of me that really absolutely nobody knows about. So few people know.
"I think there are certain things that really hit it or, like, triggered it. It's just, like, one day you get it.
"The first few days, the first time you get it, you don't understand. It makes you so frustrated.
"Like, 'What’s going on with me? I don’t know what’s happening.'
"When I get attacks, I can't move, I can't talk. I'm always just staring, and I'm not aware anymore what I'm doing, or, like, what others are doing.
"It's like I’m under this really, really dark cloud. People try to talk to me, talk me out of it.
"When they ask me what's happening, what's wrong, it's like my tongue can’t move.
"I really can't, and it makes me so frustrated, because you're trying to get a word out, just one word, and it won't come out.
"I mean, I get it so frequently, but I've also… It's a process, it's getting to know yourself…
"I think I've grown a lot of awareness already, like, what happens to me when I'm getting an attack.
"I've seen a life coach, I’ve attended an anxiety… you know, those groups when they talk about anxiety and then they teach you how to deal with it and stuff like that?" Julia told Claudia.
In a previous report by KAMI, Julia and Claudia raised funds for the construction of a quarantine facility at a hospital.
