Funny. But if Warrick comes over she won't have to settle for a romance novel.

That was a very good story. Please write more Sara Warrick stories. They are my two most favorite characters!

Um...you don't faint due to panic attacks. I've had them since I was nine.
If anything they keep you awake due to the amount of adrenalin in your bloodstream. Panic attacks are very short lived, lasting seconds -a minute at most.
Basically what happens is your mussels tense making you suddenly very strong or very fast (whichever fight/flight reaction you choose), your pupils dilate, you sweat/shiver, teeth chattering, going cold, a salty taste in the back of your mouth, hyperventilation, faster pulse, vertigo est. You feel like your going crazy, that you are in danger or just irrationally nervous.
The types of attacks Sara would be exhibiting are called site specific or 'Situational Bound panic attacks' where the person's attack is related to where they are and will immediately stop once they leave that place.
To stop the attack, lay on your stomach to compress your diaphragm -stops hyperventilation and thus stops the vertigo.
Or you can take deep, even breaths, which will have the same effect. Also, distracting the person can help. Get them to count, recite the times tables, talk about something that happened that day (keep it positive) This will distract the person and help them to calm.
Also, walking or running can burn the adrenalin off.
