I know EXACTLY what you mean in this comic. It happens to me as well!
The other bad things about anxiety/panic attacks is that it creates more anxiety. Vicious cycle.

have you tried smoking pot? ever seen a stoner have a panic attack? ... (or, you could go to the doctor and see what drugs he gives you... but i suspect pot would be more fun / natural / cheaper)

Ed, It's crazy, almost a paradox. The way a thought triggers adrenalin witch speeds up your heart rate witch in turn makes you worry more etc. I found mantras or singing out loud to block my paranoid thoughts helped. I was struggling with this for a couple years. Driving on the highway was one of the most frequent and worst places for them to occur. Luckily, the antidepressant I'm on these days has seemed to stop them for the most part.
