    Okay, my breathing is fast, chest is tight. Have felt weird all day, started to get convinced I am sick (hypochondria strikes again). Took my temperature to prove to myself that there's no fever, keep telling myself it's panic that's making my head fuzzy. I'm supposed to meet my friends for a girl's night and I know going and getting out is good, but I'm all over the place panicky. I haven't had a full blown panic attack in months and I am terrified. This is less of a question, I guess, and more of an "I need support please/make me laugh" post.

    I was going to write something encouraging but morning rush's link was so funny my mind is blank. First time I laughed out loud in months. See her post and you will feel better. :happysmiles: Hope the panic goes away quickly.

    Seven eleven breathing helps.....

    Sit down. Gently breath in to count seven.....hold a few seconds.....breath out to count eleven. Do it three or four times together and your body will relax.

    markb, Thanks for the idea! I am actually pretty keyed up this morning and am trying the seven eleven breathing.

    And as for cheering you up:

    How many babysitters does it take to change a light bulb?

    Are you joking? They can't even change a dirty diaper!
