Fear that I won't be able to breath
« on: December 03, 2012, 01:17:24 PM »
Hi

Does anyone else ever have the fear that won't be able to breath at any time? Let me explain when I am feeling anxious I feel suffocated, which cases a panic attack, but during all this I feel like I can't breath and it's so scary.

This has fuelled my anxiety that I might not be able to breath at some point and it stops me from going places incase I panic and can't breath.

Has anyone else ever felt this way?

Trust me when I say you will always breathe. Even if you tried to hold your breath forever. You wouldn't be able to. Can't be done. When we need to breathe we breathe. The thing with anxiety is that it can throw it for a loop. We start to clutch at the air. Gulp it in. This is the wrong way. That way may make us dizzy. Visit youtube and look for breathing exercises. Always breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth. Place your hand on your stomach even. To feel the breath going in and out. Just calming yourself down. It is all there to be learned. It can be very hand to know. As I said, youtube. Loads of good videos for you to view.
