I suffer from PTSD from a robbery that occurred a few years ago. Needless to say I don't enjoy being startled. I just started a new job a few weeks ago, and one of the employees came by my office and scared the crap out of me by slamming down a piece of wood on the counter while I was engrossed in a task. So I am now freaking out, very shaky, and trying not to cry.
Any calming techniques since I can't exactly leave and go hide under my covers?
Any ideas on how to get this guy to stop (apparently he is quite the jokester) without coming off as a jerk and without going into detail about my issues?
Thanks so much.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed every day.
