Laura, thank you so much for sharing your story, though I have just one area of disagreement: Your action wasn't a "superstition." It was a smart coping strategy that dealt with your fears and allowed you to move through a difficult, triggering place.

Your scarf was a talisman, a symbol of safety and protection that did, indeed, protect you that day. It was a brilliant thing to do and I'll bet there are a lot of people who not only understand your action but have done something similar, in some way, themselves. Especially those of us who deal with anxiety and panic attacks.

Well done, Laura. Well done.
