Thank you for your replies! It helps so much!
As soon as I woke up I told myself "it's fear-based, it's fear-based." I thought in my head it won't happen because I can see now that it's fear-based. Well, duh. It's going to continue to happen for awhile at least. I stayed calm. I wrote in my journal the same thing over and over, "My Heart is Healthy". I focused on a marble, describing it in my mind, feeling it, etc. The attack lasted about 10 minutes.
I'm not going to let this get to me anymore. If I die during an attack, then I die. There's nothing I can do about it. Docs say they can't find anything. So, it's up to me.
Jo, I will be doing the meditation. I do take meds but I'm adding meditation. Thanks for the advice! Yesterday I did my biofeedback and I felt great.
Percycat, so sorry to hear you're still having issues with the breathing. It will go away as soon as you get over your fear of it, just like me and my heart. I'll be thinking about you!
Kitt, I know what you mean. I have the tools to get through this. I've read the books, taken the classes and I still hit a brick wall. Thank you everyone!
