Hi, I had my first panic attack a few weeks ago and since I've been having 1 or 2 a week. They're quite bad and I find it really scary. They always happen at school and can be triggered by things I'm worried about or for no reason whatsoever. I don't know how to deal with them and my teachers always end up calling the first aider in our school who has to come and try to calm me down. I can sometimes get out the classroom if I sit near the front but sometimes I sit at the back and I struggle to walk when I have a panic attack so I can't get out the classroom until the first aider comes and helps me which is really embarrassing. Many people suggest breathing exercises but they never help me cos I feel like I can't breathe and I start breathing really fast and I can't stop it. Going outside helps me but its not very practical cos the first aider has to help me walk and sometimes the nearest door out of the building is very far away. Does anyone have any strategies for dealing with panic attacks which doesn't involve your breathing?
