    I had my first Panic attack today at Kincumber Shopping Centre, the amount of people in this place is unbelievable, Kincumber is the new Little Sydney, people everywhere.
    Coles has said they have on average 500 people an hour come to the store.
    It is such a worry, so much so, it caused much distress as a person doing the right thing and so many not, the panic was overwhelming.
    I would sincerely like to thank the young man at Coles today, whom come and spoke to me, and helped through my attack. I was hoping that someone knows the exact rules, as I refuse to go to Kincumber little Sydney again.
