Talking. For panic attacks I think talking is essential. Never had one myself bwit experienced it in others a few times and calming, soothing talk works. WorkIng through it....maybe why it happened etc. I guess something has happened 4thPanda.....illness, death, crisis or crises. First encountered this when my young sister ...aged 30....had months of chemo and radiotherapy and it was when all that finished that she suffered panic attacks. You learn fast that talking and comfort is prob only relief. I,think its the mind's way of dealing with trauma much like our dreams recycle our daily lives.
Yes, 4thPanda you do,have support here willing you to smile, relax and "take each day as it comes"
