Recently I was told that some of the stuff that was happening to me was derealization, which is essentially a very strong panic attack. Basically what happens is my heart starts racing out of control, my breathing gets labored (hyperventalating and such), and my surroundings start to get shimmery and then blurry. If someone is around me and talking to me, usually I can still hear them but it is like they are really far away. I was wondering if anyone knows about and/or suffers from this. How do you bring yourself out of it? (or just panic attacks in general?) I've tried breathing exercises, but usually when I have one I'm too worked up to do them (unless someones beside me saying "breathe"). What can I do when I'm by myself?
