    When I get really nervous and anxious I like to go outside and take in the fresh air. Then tell myself that "this too shall pass".

    Asthma, or allergy and the like doesn't matter. Controlled breathing doesn't cause asthma or anything like that. When you're having an asthma attack, you naturally go into this controlled breathing mode especially when you use an inhaler. So, having a panic attack is just like getting asthma - you bring all your focus and energies into controlling that breathing.

    Panic attack - or, I should go back to what I'm an expert at, rage - is the body's inability to gain control due to a chemical imbalance that causes an extreme physiological reaction to normal, or just slightly abnormal stimuli. To regain control, we start with something that is relatively easy to control - breathing. Breathing also has the added benefit of circulating oxygenated blood which aids in speeding up the body's natural inclination to regain balance. Being able to control breathing (relatively easier than trying to control the rage itself) gives the brain the opportunity to get back into the driver seat.

    Having your boyfriend give you a center to regain balance is great. But, this can become a crutch. This will make it so that you will become helpless if your boyfriend is out of reach.

    @anatess is giving you great information, boyfriend or someone is not always going to be
    there, YOU must learn the triggers and WHAT works to help you regain control, as many
    have said already, proper breathing is very helpful, yoga, meditation, focusing on specific
    objects or subjects, visualization...many things.

    I had panic attacks, anxiety & dxed w/PTSD so I know how horrible it is for you.

    Will lift you in prayer for complete healing of these episodes, GOD be with you & for you!

    RIP beloved boy.

    Thanks guys =)
    I was just saying that its hard for me to breath through my nose. It feels like I'm not getting enough air or something. My boyfriend isn't always their for them, but he does know about them, and will help me focus. He's actually the one that noticed that my panic attacks are brought on by stress. When I first started getting them I had just had that surgery, and my family has a very big history of cancer, mostly breast cancer, so that was stressful, my son was living with my mom to finish out the school year in his old school, I was going to school myself full time, plus working 30 hours during the weekend. So it was a bad time for me. I learned to focus on a mental imagine, and would imagine I was in the woods, and it would help. But yesterday my mind just wouldn't focus, it wasn't as bad as the ones I've had in the past, but it was enough lol

    That is a huge amount of worry stress and responsibility for one person. I know about going to your special place of stillness, and also that sometimes when you need it most you just can't seem to grasp it because everything just crashes at once. Please take extra good care of yourself now and don't judge yourself harshly for being vulnerable and human. Hugs.

    I used to carry a worry stone in my pocket that was about the size of a 50-cent piece. It said "believe" on one side. I had worried and rubbed it so much that the word was just a little faint impression. If it makes you feel any better, I hear about these panic attacks from students all the time. Learn to focus on and slow your breathing. The yoga suggestion is excellent. I used to have horrible stomach issues when I had to talk in front of people. I tried imagining them naked. That didn't work--my imagination wasn't that good. I was my own worst enemy. What I finally told myself (and really believed) that got me through it, was that no matter what I say or do in front of my audience, in the long run the only one who will remember where I screw up is me. There is nothing I can do in front of them that is the best they've ever seen--or the worst. Once I truly believed that, I relaxed and found that I enjoyed it. Now I do it for a living!!! Try to make the choice to have fun, take a deep breath, relax, and above all, don't be afraid to laugh at yourself. You are bright, beautiful, and articulate. They will love you!

    I usually wear a ring, so I can twist it and play with it, or my necklace. I noticed I play with them when I'm nervous. I also have this bad habbit of picking my lip. It's horrible. I hate it, but usually don't even notice I'm doing it until I start bleeding.
    I gave my presentation yesterday, I was shaking so hard I know people could tell lol But my teacher gave my group 100%, and that was our finals lol So I'm glad about that, but mostly glad it's over. Not the class, but the presentation lol

    I find if I'm stressing that I do the deep breathing but on the outward breath from the mouth I make a sound such as ohm or whatever the whole time I am slowly breathing out. By the time I do this 5 or 6 times I am usually much calmer. Can be as loud or soft as your situation allows. Hope things calm down for you.
