Don’t. Just breath and give yourself the space you need. It’s ok to go MIA for a few hours. Also, see this as you building a muscle on how to deal with stressful scenarios. You’ll have many of those in your career (job interview, client pitch, board meeting, etc), so intentionally use this moment to build your EQ skills. :)
