Argh. I'm hitting lots of panic attacks lately. I know what they stem from, but I can't stop the crazy train, bleh. It's like once I find a single thread of dissaray, that's it, all rational thought goes out the window and I become a mess. Been trying to practice deep breathing to help.

Aw, I'm sorry you're dealing with this. I've been having panic attacks for as long as I can remember. Deep breathing definitely helps, just make sure you don't hyperventilate. Make sure you're going slow.

Thank you! I'm feeling a little bit better.
