Some helpful information for dealnig with panic attacks


#1

There are some very standard things to do when someone you love and care giving for starts having a panic attack. This simple article has some very basic things to keep in mind.

I liked panel number 4.

Don’t say, “Calm down,” or “There’s nothing to panic about.” Gee, that’s genius. They didn’t think of that! Patronizing them will just put them on higher alert.

It’s a quick article with tips and things that we probably know, but might forget at times.

This information has helped me stay calm and be effective while others I care about are having an attack.

I hope you find it useful as well.

Thank you for letting me post.
