A panic attack is hitting me.
I lay down, try to calm my breathing, and try to settle my fluttering heart while I close my eyes.
I take a deep breath in with my nose and let it out through my mouth as I count down from 10.
It takes numerous attempts for me to regain control and return to earth.
I sip on water because my throat is dry, but even that is exhausting.
I eventually drift off to sleep thinking of Sam
I wake up coughing nonstop, and I know I’m having trouble breathing, I sounds terrible because I’m practically wheezing
I'm still covered in a blanket, but when I'm having a panic attack, my temperature always goes up
After ten minutes, I'm still agitated and pace the room.
It makes me more angry.
The worst is still to come, and my chest starts to constrict.
I inhale deeply as I sit on the side of the bed.
