Write the first bit about being in the throes of a panic attack. Get right in there with the 'action.' You could have, say, three friends out on the town, young, having fun. Suddenly the one with anxiety starts to feel funny, the tingling, the adrenal flash, the shortness of breath. The reader thinks at this point it's a medical issue...you then reveal it's extreme anxiety and how it feels just like you are dying and how you don't just 'get over it.'
