I was on the brink of a panic attack just now and I used the grounding technique. I was describing to myself everything I saw and what color it was (in detail). I also controlled my breathing as much as I could, trying to take full deep breaths and let them out slowly. Lately I haven't been too successful with overcoming panic attacks so it's nice to have a small victory. I do feel a bit on edge but am tired so hoping I'll just fall asleep and rest for a long time! I'm also hoping this technique will keep any further anxiety away. I've heard about grounding from multiple people on this site and just want to pass along that it worked for me tonight so may work for someone else, too.

Yes, I feel more confident in my ability to handle panic attacks. Fortuantely I haven't had another to test those abilities just yet :):p
