    I did always have panic attacks when I was in year 8/9 then they pretty much stopped for a while, but in the last few months with AS's and since my ex split with me they have become more frequent.

    I am better at controlling them than i was 3ish years ago. Before I hyperventilate to much i can generally slow my breathing down, but i always end up crying due to the shock. This seems to scare people more as when they realise im crying they realise my breathings funny etc.

    Today I had one in one of my classes one triggered (not sure why exactly, my mums in hospital so this is stressing me out a bit) and i kept in so well under control except for the shaking and crying. I hate it and it gets people all concerned when it isn't really any of their business.

    Any clues to how to control panic attacks calmly, quickly and discreetly?
