Panic attack as we speak, can anyone help please?

I've woke up panicking over an irrational thought that I can't seem to get off my mind. I've calmed down a bit but just need a distraction if anyone can help please? X

    Hi, Pauline.  I have suffered from panic attacks for many years.  Thank God, I'm on the right meds now, but I'm here for you if you need me.  I live in the USA, and I have found that beta blockers, along with antidepressants and antianxiety meds work for me.  I still have one once in a while, but these things really help.  I have found that prayers, meditating, playing games on my ipad, etc. help to talk my mind off it.  Also, take a cold wash cloth and rub it all over your face and neck...very relaxing....Keep in touch, we are all here for you....HUGS.

    concentrate on your breath, i often times sit and close my eyes and see an elevator going up as i breath in and hold the breath for a few second and then breathe out and lower the elevator , breath is very important and when we are anxious we have a tendency not to breath the wright way..

    another suggestion try and do somthing you love that serves as a distraction
