I had an episode this morning and it had never happened before I think it was an anxiety/panic attack. I (all of a sudden) couldnt breathe, felt light headed, fell out for a few moments, chest hurt, heart pounded wildly then I started crying uncontrollably. It took me nearly an hour to get myself settled. I laid in the floor and stroked the dog and concentrated on breathing, it passed but I still feel shaky.
I also feel foolish, has anyone else had anything like this happen to them? With a night like last night, its probably no surprise. I'll talk to the counselor tomorrow.
Thoughts and prayers-
