I can't catch my breath, it's all a panic
I can't function, feel sick,.my head hurts, everything hurts.
I stupidly fell out with my son tonight because he was shouting and swearing at the Xbox and he was scaring me, I hate being scared, especially of my own children.
I need to phone the crisis team but I don't know what to say, don't think I have any words left it all sounds so stupid
My head hurts and I can't think straight, maybe I don't want to think straight then I will have no worries left 😭 😭

Call your crisis team.
In the mean time, try and take deep slow breaths. flowers

Try this breathing technique:

1. Take a long, slow breath in through your nose, first filling your lower lungs, then your upper lungs.
2. Hold your breath to the count of "three."
3. Exhale slowly through pursed lips, while you relax the muscles in your face, jaw, shoulders, and stomach
