As to what happens when you have a serious anxiety attack,
When I used to get them so bad that I couldn't stop shaking, I would find my favorite music, a stick and then flip the stick up and down in my hand to the beat of the music until the anxiety went away. It is all pure distraction until the symptoms go away.
