    Okay, I know people may say to you I know how you feel and don't worry! I have been there and it doesn't do jack s**t lol I had the worst of the worst panic attacks when my two uncles passed away then my dad fell Ill and my sisters epilepsy got worse:( and stress at school !!!i even go in to school as they were so bad. I did go and see someone and they didn't really do much but talk about nice things and explain what a panic attack was after that it was a load of poop lol so what i did was I researched for different ways to stop panic attacks, so I found it said a panic attack is causes by worry about something so you have to clear your mind nd don't worry as hard as it is you have to try, then breathe in and out SLOWLY then have a sip of water and completely Chang your thoughts. Now you need to tell your school teachers that you have these ok because they do help so if you have one in class you can say please may I be excused then you can go get some air and a drink! :)

    I get that way too sometimes. People have panic attacks for different reasons, and usually most of the time the panic stems from an irrational fear. (For instance, I used to get panic attacks driving on the freeway because I was afraid I would get lost and take a wrong exit....). I've been going to counseling for my anxiety for about a year now and it has really helped me. I had a major panic attack last year when I thought I was having a heart attack/stroke (I was only 22 at the time...very unusual for that to happen to someone of that age, but you never know!) I went to my doctor immediately just to check to be sure that those things weren't happening. So, that is the first thing I would do. Go to your doctor with what you are worried about in regards to yourself. Also, be HONEST with your doctor. Tell him/her you are having frequent panic attacks. My doctor recommended counseling and was not pushy with the medication. I did not want to be medicated and have been able to work through my panic and anxiety attacks without medication. If that is something you want to do, you need to communicate it. Also, I bought the "Anxiety and Phobia Handbook" from Amazon. It's a workbook that guides you through coping with your panic and phobia. "Calming the Anxious Mind" is another good one. Please get the help you need. It is not good for your body or your mind to be under such stress all the time. (Yes, panic attacks are stressful to your body!) Yoga and exercise have also helped me, as well as taking time for me every day. You will be in my prayers. Feel free to email me if you need more info :c)

    I think the problem is that you're just trying to forget your problems and move on, instead of working through your problems and managing them. So because you haven't worked through them they resurface without you wanting them too through panic attacks. It's your way of telling yourself that things are not ok.

    You do need attention. You need someone to hear and acknowledge what you're going or been through. And you need someone to pay attention to your problems and help you through it. Getting attention from men by dressing a certain way won't help you lead to more problems.

    If you're in the USA you can call the panic attack helpline and start talking to someone. http://www.usatodate.com/travel/USA/hotline_number...

    Or you can find a hotline in your country, for panic attacks or mental health services where you can get free counselling.

    Otherwise colleges normally have free counselling for their students that you can get when you start studying there.

    Don't do nothing, the panic attacks are a sign that you need to work through some of the problems you have.

    go see a counsellor, long term.. Yes its panic attacks... Stop dressing skanky for attention, that shows you have confidence issues, and opens you up to more problems, unwanted advances, being raped etc. See a counsellor.
