Caitlyn Jenner Had ‘Massive Panic Attack’ During Transition (Video)

Former Olympian also tells “Today” anchor Matt Lauer about the advantages of having breasts during golf

Caitlyn Jenner revealed that the stress of her transition into a woman caused her to have a “massive panic attack.”

“I had a massive panic attack. I’d never had anything like that in my life. It was, like, so scary. My heart was just pounding and this and that,” Jenner told “Today” anchor Matt Lauer. “In my head when I shut my eyes, it was just, like, ‘My God, what did you just do?’ Because that surgery kind of passed the point of no return.”

Jenner said she now feels no regrets, however. “I just want my family to be okay. All of that stuff takes time. You transition, your whole family goes through this,” she said.

“They’ve been a blessing in my life, and you don’t want anything to hurt them, and you wonder, are you doing the right thing? You know, living your true self. And everybody handles it differently,” she continued.

Jenner also said that, despite now living as a woman, she has maintained her “sick sense of humor.” This included giving Lauer a lesson in how breasts can be an advantage on the golf course.

“As far as the full swing, I really haven’t noticed any difference,” she said. “But where they are an advantage is putting. Now you’ve got these little puppies right here and here to kind of hold on to that position.”
