I was wondering if anyone could share some ideas about what to say to people when you are having a panic attack and they don't know what it is. How do people react? E.g. I panicked in a dance class and a girl I don't know well asked me 'what's wrong?' I replied 'I can't do it' which wasn't a very good answer. I think I could have said 'I'm just nervous about joining in' or something like that. I tend to find it quite hard to say anything in these situatons anyway. So do you tell people what's really going on? Experiences??
