Panic

Squeezing

Twisting

Restricting

Constricting

.

Can’t move

Can’t breathe

Can’t run

Can’t scream

.

Stomach clenching

Heart pounding

Hands perspiring

Eyes tearing

.

Relax

Breathe

It’ll be fine

You’ll see

.

Okay

You’ve got this

Deep breaths

Just rest

.

Muscles soften

Air released

All is well

Rinse, repeat
