Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: anxiety attack and panic attacks

I don't think I've ever had a "real" panic attack where I couldn't breath and all that scary stuff. But I've cried so hard that I couldn't breath. Cried because I was scared. Mostly in school situations, but a few times it just totally freaks me out that I can't understand what the person in the bank tells me (or a situation like that). But ever since I found out that dyscalculia exists, in January 2004, I've only experienced that 2-3 times. Before it was 2-3 times a week, at least.
When I play cards and stuff like that, I get angry when I don't understand. Not afraid, just angry. "Just". But it quickly passes.
Hopefully time will heal, and if not, you can always try therapy :)
