Does anyone have in-the-moment tips that AREN'T "slow, steady breathing"? It always just makes it worse, since sitting and breathing just lets me think even MORE about how it's all going wrong.

      Counting backwards from 400 activated the logic side of my brain and helps me ignore the emotional side that’s taking over during my panic attacks. Helps a lot

      "Rebreathing" helps me sometimes (like with a clean brown paper lunch bag). If my attacks aren't too heavy, I'll try to exercise to give the panic-energy somewhere to go.
