    My boyfriend of two years and I broke up. I freak out took quite a bit of nyquil to sleep and also one Unison sleeping pill. This was around six PM. I also hadn't slept AT ALL the night before. Then at ten pm he shows up with friends and family to help him move his stuff out. I freaked out even worse. Crying and having panic attacks and not being able to breathe well. I was up until around 1 am not being able to sleep because of the anxiety and my raised heart rate. I took a very low dose Xanex and finally fell asleep around two am. It's now early morning and my heart rate continues to give me anxiety. I can't sleep, my mind is foggy and I have terrible anxiety. What do i do to help myself? Please help.
