If you do not suffer from panic attacks, consider yourself fortunate. I have been struggling with panic attacks since 1991 and they are no fun. Normally, I can defuse the situation and ward off a panic attack but sometimes they sneak upon me - like today. I was minding my own business when one hit me. My solution for a panic attack is to take my medicine and find a cat! Sam is the best medicine for any illness, but particularly a panic attack. He will lay with me and purr and pet me until I feel better. It's a good thing!
