I'm sorry that you are surrounded by ignorant people who are too narrow minded to understand what you are going through. Experiencing panic attacks is a manifestation of anxiety or other psychiatric-related illnesses. People should be supportive and understand that you need professional help.<br />

I've had a panic attack whilst in the car with my friends and they were so good about it. They pulled over and got me a bag to breathe into and calmed me down. <br />
I guess my point is that not everyone is unsympathetic. Panic attacks are not something you can easily control or just 'get over'. There are people out there who understand.
