My ex girlfriend had one last year but then nothing else happened until today. I was at my place and she called me crying and freaking out because she thought she was dying and was home alone. I like a couple of blocks away so I went over and stayed with her.
I read online that you need to control your breathing when that happens so I tried to help her with that but it still lasted like AT LEAST half an hour. How do you deal with that? how can I help if it happens again?

Remind her that it's all in her mind. She is safe and she has to regain control of her mind. If she continues panicking then she probably wants quiet. I know during BAD panic attacks I would feel even more terrified to have someone talking to me. Just having someone next to me physically, maybe holding me, helped ease the trauma.0
