I'll tell you to calm down. Remember, anxious people dont like to be put into situations like this. It is understandable that you feel like you are going crazy.

Just stay calm. The "Pot" thing around the kids really concerns me though. people should have enough sense to keep that away from children. They will most certainly get a contact high from being around it.

Anyway, write back if you need calming

Just try singing a song to yourself for distraction. Sometimes it is hard to ignore the panic symptoms. I try thinking of another time I had it worse than the situation I am in. Believe it or not, it comforts me to do this.

I did it earlier today when i was very uptight. I thought of a moment I felt worse and everything worked out. It really calmed me down. Try it.

Try keeping a journal when you are anxious.  Sometimes it helps to get some of those feelings out then you don't feel so horrible.

The song thing does work too.  Anything that you can do to distract your thoughts should help you.

Try drinking some decafe tea.

Feel better.....

The unreal feeling really does suck. I had it earlier today. But remember, as weird as this seems, it cannot hurt you.
