I am not sure if my daugher is having a panic attack or hyperventilating. I also do not know what to do when this happens. It doesn't happen very often, but when she gets hurt, she freaks out and can't calm down. She can't hardly catch her breath, and scares me to death. She slammed her finger in the door last night, and I was so afraid she was going to pass out from breathing wrong. I guess I'm really afraid how she would handle it if she really got hurt bad and I wasn't around.
