Sophie Mei Len, a mother-of-two, recorded herself while suffering a panic attack a few steps away from her children who were innocently playing in their bedroom.


In the clip, Mei Len appeared crying and struggling to breathe while saying that she didn’t want to be there as she couldn’t “cope.” The mother added that she would have to put her daughters to sleep, but she needed to stop crying first.

Later, Mei Len said that she would have to tell her girls that she was crying because she was not feeling well because, of course, telling them she was having a panic attack was not an option.

As Daily Mail reported, the proud mother recorded herself because she wanted to show what mental illness could be like. Mei Len pointed out that such diseases do not discriminate as she has a loving family and caring friends and she still felt that way.

“Some people may find it strange I picked up my phone, but it shows real life at its most ugly and raw. Filming this clip has been therapeutic for me because on paper I am successful and I look normal,” revealed Mei Len.

The mother shared some details on her attacks by saying that they were hard to control or predict as they could happen when she was tired, ill, upset, or when she felt she let someone down. Lei Men confessed that her panic attack made her feel guilty and overwhelmed.

“I want to be in the present for my children for them but sometimes it's hard and I feel like I've failed them. I'm responsible for looking after my children so I can't walk out and get help – which all mums will recognise. The attack has to pass and filming it will help others realise that your attack will eventually end,” added Mei Lin.



The rest of the clip showed ChannelMum.com explaining that 85% of mothers claim to have suffered from any form of anxiety or mental health issue with pregnant or shortly after becoming a parent. ChannelMum.com's psychologist Emma Kenny said that, even though they were tough, mothers could begin to manage panic attach with the right support and mental health training.



It was not the only time that an anxiety attack was captured on video. A seven-year-old boy named Jacob started “freaking out” when the police pulled his mother over for speeding. Knowing how bad it could get, the officers did their best to calm the boy down.

They told Jacob that there was no need to be afraid and even invited him and his mother to check out their police cars. In no time, the boy relaxed. They took pictures, and Jacob kept saying that the officers were his “heroes.”
