    .....Get it all out. Panic attack. It won't kill you, it will pass, breathe in deeply slowly and out slowly. You probably know this stuff already but a reminder might help. Please call the hospital if you are thinking of suicide or if you self harm. You're not alone.

    Thank you Petal. I'm trying to breathe deep but chest is so tight. so tight it hurts. I hate panicking. I know it'll pass. i just wish it would already.
    He's singing crazy songs on skype to me so its helping a bit :) thank you so much for reminding me about the hospital. That thought always leaves me completely when i'm in crisis but they have been very helpful in the past :hug:

    You are very welcome, when the chest is tight you are most likely hyperventilating and breathing into a paper bag should help a bit. I really hope it eases off very soon for you as you have had such a good day so far. :hug:

    Getting some fresh air might help too. Yes, I am the same when I have a panic attack my mind goes blank so the reminders are good! Wishing you all the best my friend :)
