Do you like to listen to music or sing? I will get my fac CDs and sing like a fool in the car, especially on the way to a stressful appt like the Dr or something. I'll listen to classical (Mozart) if I need to calm down, or some BIlly Joel if I want something upbeat.
I'm sure people in the cars next to me think I'm a loon but it gets me from point A to B. I've had an attack before and called 911 while on the highway. I pulled over at a business and the ambulance came/took me to the hospital...very embarrassing. I started the singing thing after that event.
Hang in there.
