" this has happened a millions times before and I've been okay. This is typical anxiety just try to relax and let it pass... It always passes."

And then I start feeling normal.

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.

"I am safe, I am fine, I am protected."

This is the mantra that I repeat to my son as I do EFT tapping on him.  It calms him down from full blown panic in less than a minute.

Seriously.  The EFT tapping is weird, but totally works.  There is a great video on mercola.com. to learn how to do it.  It's not exactly something you could do in public though....

I really think it helps and repeating the phrases that "this anxiety is part of me....it is here to help..."

Good luck....mostly deep breathing and prayer helps me get through....

I'm really glad I found this tonight... Right now I feel anxious with and off feeling and a hint of irrational anger... I hate this feeling, yet I know it's just my anxiety morphing into it's silly little masks.  I  tell myself " It's me, its only me and my thoughts, they're just thoughts and they will pass."  "It will pass" seems to help me a lot.  A lot of time I tell myself to "Ride the wave of anxiety"   "F*#K you anxiety" "I'm safe"  "This is the worlds longest heart attack"  "I cannot believe I've had a heart attack, MS, ALS, Cancer and a brain tumor all in one day / week" I find myself laughing at this one.  Lets all keep our head up... We're very strong people.

"Alright panic attack, BRING IT ON!!"

Then, I try to imagine it getting worse. If I am trembling, I focus on this and actually exaggerate it. Once I have made it a voluntary action, it then seems ridiculous and I stop.

Donít keep endlessly looking for a cure to your anxiety. Create one by no longer letting it rule what you do and donít do.

I always say the word relax and I count with it like relax 1, relax 2 and so on.  I just try to trick my brain into forgetting about it but the best thing that works for me is striking up a conversation with a total stranger.  For some reason that helps me so much, try it I promise it works.
