Fear of not being able to breathe and Fear of suffocation
« on: February 27, 2014, 10:34:40 AM »
I have a weird fear - Fear of not being able to breathe and Fear of suffocation. I never had breathing problems in my life. I tend to associate death with not being able to breathe ( struggling and gasping for breath for a lot of days  before dying ) and suffocation feeling that comes during death. I strongly believe that these two things are inevitable for everyone. I dread any breathing problems. Does anyone have similar issue/fears ?. Are my fears irrational ?. I have had these fears for a long time and cannot seem to get rid of them from my mind.Oh one more fear. I fear cancer not for pain but for the breathing problems it presents. I read somewhere that all advanced cancers cause breathing problems. Any disease that causes breathing problems scare me. Any one with similar fears ?

Perhaps try asking this question in phobias section? You may get more feedback there. Or perhaps try using search option above right and/ or check out topics, which open below, when you click your topic? Just a thought. Hope someone has some valuable input.

Hope you feel better!

As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
