She went on to talk about feeling "terrified" and "embarrassed". Read her post in full.

#mentalhealthawarenessweek This day and these photos will forever stick out for me. Look how happy I am and how much fun we're having! 5 minutes before this was taken I was in charlottes arms unable to breath having one of the biggest panic attacks of my life. If you know that tingling light headed buzzing ringing in the ear feeling your body is starting to go numb and when you know it's coming and you're fighting to stop it and all of a sudden it feels like your chest is so tight your heart is going to explode and you go to breath in and it feels like someone's put a plug in your airway! Tears streaming out of my face completely terrified and embarrassed. But of course once that was over I had to work, put on that brave confident face and pretend it never happened. I had so many attacks that day I was exhausted. I'd say this was the height of my anxiety but to look at me would you ever have even known? I'm the girl who will panic about being late so much that I'm an hour early. I'm the girl who will spend 3 hours on a train worrying about asking the person next to me to move if I need to get off. BUT I'm also the girl who is now in Thailand ALONE! I'm meeting people and actually initiating conversations with others rather than standing at the back scared to make eye contact! Im the girl who is always gunna have anxiety but I'm also the girl who's telling you it doesn't have to control your life! For the first time in my life I'm truly happy and I'm so grateful every single day that I'm managing to get past this I can't even remember the last time I had a panic attack!👊🏼 there's always someone listening whatever you're going through you are NOT ALONE 🙌🏼❤️ #stopthestigma #yougotthis
