HOW I GET OVER PANIC ATTACKS

  1. Have someone describe their day to me in excruciating detail
  2. Adult coloring books
  3. Touch things nearby
    The "grounding" technique
  4. Listen to an episode of This American Life
  5. Watch a Food Network show
  6. Walk to the nearest McDonald's and get a small McFlurry
    Walking clams me and ice cream calms me. Double whammy!!
  7. Sort a deck of cards
  8. Pet a cat or a dog or any other animal
  9. Sit in a bathroom
  10. Cry
    The good ol' standby
