two weeks ago I learned that one of my classmates died of cancer and I had a panic attack. I didn't even know this person I only passed them a few times in the hallway but when I got home I couldn't stop thinking about them. I just kept on thinking about their friends and family and how horribly sad they looked when I saw them that day. I was all alone in my house and I just kept pacing and pacing back and forth through my kitchen, my hands clenched into fists and my nails were digging into my palm. I couldn't slow my breathing and my heart felt like it might explode. Meanwhile my thoughts were buzzing so fast I couldn't make sense of any of it. Eventually I just ran to my room and laid in my bed until my heart slowed and I could actually think again. does anyone have any advice on how to calm down during a panic attack because If this happened in class I would have been totally screwed.
