I’m looking for coping mechanisms for panic attacks, mostly random and untriggered. I struggle finding people who relate and understand what I’m going through.

      I remind myself that every other time I’ve had a panic attack, I have made it through. Also I let the HR person at work know I struggle with panic attacks and that sometimes I need to just sit in the break room for a few minutes. She was very understanding but every work place is different. Knowing that we’re on the same page helps me fear panic attacks less.

      my management team is really great and understands this is a real struggle for me, they always offer their office for me to sit if i need to calm down. and trust me, i have them almost daily, i understand completely.
