Thank you for your question. I understand your worries regarding your condition.

There are several ways that you can try whenever you facing panic attack:

  1. Control your breathing, take a deep breath gently and slowly

  2. Close your eyes, you might want to close your eyes to avoid any frightening moment and help you focusing more on yourself.

  3. Remind yourself of what actually happened and you currently having a panic attack. Tell yourself that this is just the attack and you are okay.

  4. Focus on an object, look for any object closed to you and try to focus on it. Focusing on an object can help you overcome the fearness that you are facing.

If your panic attack keep occuring, i suggest you to have a better consultation with doctor at the clinic to know more about the disease and find the suit solution for you.
