I just thought of something.

My pdoc would ask me, "So, what if you had a panic attack during the workshop? What do you think the others would think?"

Here is my cue to come up with a reasonable answer.

My reasonable answer would be:

Well, they'll probably think I'm having a panic attack. I assume everyone there will be familiar with panic attacks. Everyone will understand. I would probably have to leave the room for a few minutes and go back in when I'm ready. No big deal, people probably won't even notice too much.

Then I would probably say:

The chances of me having a panic attack during the workshop are very very slim. I haven't had a truly terrifying panic attack since childhood and strong wind is my trigger, not public speaking.
