    How do you calm down from a panic/anxiety attack? I'm getting my results in precisely 8 hours, and I've been having panic attacks, and I doubt I will sleep tonight

    Think of the best case scenario and entirely believe it.

    Or get high.

    Me too, bro. But don't be nervous. The results have been set for weeks now, so worrying won't do anything.

    Panic attacks get worse the more you think about it. If you're there thinking, "OH MY GOD, MY EXAM RESULTS ARE TOMORROW!", it's not going to help in the slightest. Whenever I have panic attacks, I make the mistake of acting like I'm almost dying, I overreact and just it worse. The best thing to do is just to lie down, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. It sounds cliched, but it helps to get your body calmer. Drink some water and listen to some music, eventually you'll calm down.

    I don't know.

    I had them for over a year for my results [yes, that's right I hadn't even started the course yet nevermind the exams].

    Nightmare.

    Try to distract yourself? Watch TV/DVD or something?

    Light up the bong, son.

    There's "Medical Weed" in the States for a reason.

    Camomile tea (if you've got any in your house), watch a favourite film of yours, listen to some soothing music.

    I know how it feels, I was feeling just like that last year with my A Levels. The last two days before results day were a nightmare, it literally felt like my heart was going to rip out of my ribcage
