I am currently doing my ps and wish to include some information about a bad academic semester. During that semester I started suffering panic attacks, which currently I do not have anymore... I included the fact that I had panic attacks and that I learned the value of balancing my time. The problem is that, a lot of people that read my ps, (even a doctor), have said that it is a bad idea to say anything negative about myself, even though I had a bad semester. What do you guys think? I really would appreciate any input. I just don't want to get into the interview, and when they ask me and I try to explain, they wonder if I was trying to ignore that semester completely.
