It's a lecture on child and adult support and protection so triggering off stuff for me. Getting skipped beats, started after took a drink of water , each one makes me dizzy and panic. 1/half hours to go yet. Worried ir's something serious and I should be going sad

If it's a difficult subject for you, it may be best to leave and allow yourself to calm down, if you think the situation is causing your feelings. If you leave and they continue after then maybe seek medical advice. I'm sure if you leave, email the lecturer and advise it's a difficult subject they will understand and if you do need the content to go through it in a more manageable way in the future

Take deep slow breaths. In for 7, out for 11

You won’t be the only person feeling like that I promise.

Usually before sensitive stuff they would say you are welcome to leave at any point if you feel uncomfortable.

Some of the stuff we cover at work is very very difficult to listen to if you have experience of it personally.

Will breathing help? Or, sometimes doing mental arithmetic or counting all the blue objects in the room. Concentrating on something else and using a different part of your brain.

Only 30 minutes to go.

Presumably you're not getting skipped beats... you're anxious. You're getting more anxious because the palpitations are freaking you out. Try to relax. Nothing is going to happen. If anything did happen, you're in a room full of people who would rush to help you.
