For me it helps immensely if I just accept it and kind of laugh it off, if I start to panic I say ok let's have a panic attack then, and we can practice my coping skills

Since I recommitted my life to Christ alongside my DH last fall, tonight I did something different.  I bowed my head, and said, "Father God, I give you my mind to care for in the name of Jesus."

I cannot believe the relief I had.  I'm going to try this again when my heart rate speeds up for no reason like it did last week and scared me.  My DH is going in for an angiogram and we had to wait 2 weeks for his appt. which is Monday, July 15.  He had quad bypass in 2002, and a stress test in June needs to be investigated Monday.

irshgurl, I am a Big Bang Theory fan too and also sometimes sing Soft Kitty to myself.  Other times, I do breathing exercises and say "ocean, ocean, ocean" over and over.  Watching the ocean has always been calming to me so I try to bring a vision of it to my mind.

Just knowing what it is and accepting it. Sometimes music helps.

I actually just count by 2's lol that and I hold my breath then suck in a very deep breath, I do that over and over. I lay down if possible, but I find especially in public I just count or try to find something to read..a line over and over. It distracts me and lets me calm down before everyone notices me freaking out.

If it's severe, I actually say the word stop and visualize a stop sign.
