Hey anastasia,

Just keep taking long deep breaths if you can and count to three as you are breathing in and then slowy out again. Hope it passes soon

These days I am mostly in a constant state of anxiety and agitation *sigh*
Are you on medication, I can;t remember if you ever mentioned it - some meds can be a cause.

OK well it could be that - I don;t know though I am not a Dr - see if you get continuous symptoms like that. Its usually in the early days you get the side effects of the meds.
