Scared to return to where I had last panic attack

Last November I suffered a crippling panic attack, alone, in a building in our local town. I've not returned since, and even the thought of going back in there terrifies me.

The thing is, I really want to take the children there now it's the Summer holidays. Has anyone got over such feelings, been able to control them?

Sorry, it all sounds quite vague, doesn't it?

Was it the fact you were alone in the building that gave you the panic attack, or was it something else in your life and you just happened to be there?

If you took the children there, would there be another adult with you?

I think it was maybe being alone. I went to the cinema for the first time ever on my own as a treat now the children had both started at school. 3/4 through Skyfall and it kicked in.

It would be just me and the children. I get panicky just thinking about going there again in case it happened and I would have to deal with it with two children too.
