Breathe.
Keep moving forward
Don’t let go,
Close your eyes, don’t let it catch you
Breathe.
My body shuts down and refuses to relax
My throat wants to scream
And then I realize that this is a panic attack
 
Calm down,
Don’t think
Just breathe.
In,
Out.
 
Hold on,
 
My body is numb as a fear grips me
Stop.
But I can’t
my mind is turning
My body shaking
My lungs refusing to take in air
 
Stop thinking
What am I scared of?
My eyes are flooding with black spots
My chest stops rising
and I don’t know if I’m breathing anymore
Stop.
Breathe
I gasp as my body finally listens, and takes in air
That’s all I needed to remember,
Breathe

That's good to know if I have a panic attack I never had one before.
