My sister was just walking to work on the highway and she just like me we both have high anxiety. were talking on the phone and she crying from seeing a skunk and some other animals and she CNT calm down. Someone came and got her but I'm freaking out I feel like I can't breath and I'm light headed. How do you calm down when it's this strong ?

I've learned to talk to myself to tell myself everything is alright. I get panic attacks and feel like I'm dying especially when I'm driving. Breathe slowly and relax yourself.

Don't fight the panic, the harder you fight it the longer it will stay.
Try to find a calm and relaxing place to be and just focus on breathing easy

Thanks for responding. I ended up making myself sleep from all the crying.
