I have ptsd, bipolar 1 and now panic disorder. I'm new here. I was taken off lorazepam about 3 months ago. Now I'm having really bad anxiety and panic attacks. I feel so scared when I have them.

What helps you when you're having a panic attack? If you have them...

Any input is appreciated. :low:

I was taught to focus on my breathing, particularly on the out-breath. I also find wiggling my fingers and toes and pacing helps - because when I panic I often freeze.
