I just learned that as I am asthmatic I shouldn't breathe into a paper bag when having a panic attack. Oops.

Oh well. Three years of suffering from Panic Attacks and nine years being asthmatic shows that even some doctors either forget OR just don't know these things......
I ♥ Runrig.

    I've suffered from Panic Attacks for 3 years and always used the paper bag routine, but was looking on Asthma UK last night whilst I was wide awake and found it out....

    Quite strange how my GP hasn't said owt.
